Figures from the International Energy Agency show that nearly 70 per cent of global electricity is currently generated from fossil fuels. Although power generation policies are increasingly focused on improving efficiency and reducing our reliance on fossil fuels, conventional thermal remains the most likely means of meeting escalating demand for energy, particularly from developing nations, and continues to meet a significant percentage of the world’s energy needs.
The power generation market is seeking solutions to a range of challenges, including the need for infrastructure renewal in the wake of the global financial crisis, as well as issues relating to increasing demand for renewable energy, security, skills shortages and an evolving regulatory environment.
Aurecon provides comprehensive consultancy services to project developers, contractors, asset owners and lenders over the entire power generation project life cycle. Our power generation expertise covers the development and implementation of new projects, engineering and technical support with regard to existing assets, and technical advisory and lender’s engineering roles for power projects and asset sales. In addition, we have the knowledge and experience to provide, among others, full environmental impact assessments (EIAs) as required in determining the feasibility of potential projects.
We have a history of successfully developing and delivering power generation projects utilising a variety of technologies. These include conventional thermal generation utilising coal, gas and oil, to renewable applications utilising wind, hydro, solar and biomass.
With more than 25 years of international experience in power generation, we manage project development and implementation in a proactive manner to prevent delays, simultaneously implementing highly effective project risk mitigation strategies.
