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.
Solar Power Partners: E3 prepared a technical due diligence report to support construction and term financing, and performed construction monitoring and completion and acceptance verification services on a portfolio of 19 grid connected PV systems that included a variety of rooftop and ground-mounted canopies at institutional locations. The portfolio of 19 separate installations spread across two states with a total installed capacity of 7 MW. E3’s scope included verification of the energy production forecasts, review of design and equipment selection, review of contractor qualifications and acceptance criteria.
Ausra/Areva Technology Evaluation: E3 assisted Areva in its evaluation of Ausra’s concentrating linear Fresnel lens thermal solar technology as part of its planned investment in Ausra. E3 assisted in developing industry standard testing procedures and uncertainty analysis to be used in performance tests of Ausra’s latest solar steam generator technology.
