Renewable Energy and Alternative Fuels
E3 has experience with a wide variety of renewable energy projects and technologies. Within E3 and the personal backgrounds of our employees, we have worked on renewable energy projects including wind power, geothermal power, solar (thermal and photovoltaic), hydroelectric, landfill gas, waste-to-energy, biomass power, biomass to fuels (both hydrolysis & fermentation and gasification & catalytic), biodiesel, and anaerobic digestion projects.
Renewable energy and alternative fuels assignments have included technology assessments, environmental assessments and permitting, project planning, feasibility assessments, technical and economic due diligence, construction monitoring, and operations and maintenance reviews.
E3 has been involved with wind power projects with up to 450 turbines, ethanol production facilities up to 100 million gallons per year, biodiesel facilities up to 180 million gallons per year, geothermal power production facilities up to 220 MW, biomass, biogas and waste-to-energy projects in excess of 50 MW.
Tasyapi Energy Group Hydro Projects: E3 was engaged to conduct a technical fatal flaw analysis of five hydroelectric plants located in the country of Turkey with a total capacity of approximately 175 MW: 1) Ahmetcik, 2) Akinci, 3) Catkoy, 4) Midilli, and 5) Yavuz. Each of the plants was either under construction or licensed and soon to be constructed. E3 teamed with a local engineering firm located in Ankara, Turkey to provide in-country engineering, costing, consulting, permitting, and site visits as required. E3’s scope included review of technical design of the facilities, interconnections to the grid, hydro resource and production assumptions and project costs.
Lake Elsinore Pumped Hydro Storage Project: E3 conducted a technical due diligence review and prepared an independent engineer’s report for the proposed Lake Elsinore Advanced Pumped Storage Project and the associated Talega-Escondido/Valley-Serrano 500-kV Transmission Line. The Lake Elsinore project, located near Los Angeles has a rated capacity of 300 MW. E3’s review included technical design, permitting requirements, construction costs and schedule, hydro resource and production analysis.
