The term clean energy is everywhere; you find it in almost every newspaper, magazine, books and newscast coverage. What does Phoenix mean by the term? Another choice of term could be renewable energy or alternative energy but these are typically more limited, since these do not include some subsectors such as power efficiency and cleaner fossil fuels among others.
Clean energy is at the same time more limited than the field of cleantech. Cleantech typically includes all the categories that fall under clean energy but also includes the categories of clean water, environmental cleanup, recycling and even broader areas such as removing toxic materials from everyday products.
In the PCR-Energy definition of clean energy, PCR-Energy consider nuclear power outside the scope, since the nuclear waste produced by nuclear power is one of the most dangerous substances on earth.
Clean energy in the Phoenix sense covers Wind Power, Solar Power, Wave/Tidal Power, Fuel Cells, Geothermal power, Power Storage and Backup Systems, Clean Transportation, Power Efficiency, Ethanol and Biofuels and Biomass and Biogas.
What is renewable energy?
In the clean energy sector there is a broad array of technologies and applications that are under development, however there is not one single technology that solves all of the world’s energy problems.
This is where the world-class expertise of PCR-Energy comes into play.
PCR-Energy offers tailor-made solutions for our clients already involved in these sectors or for those who are thinking about becoming major players in the area.
PCR-Energy services range from simple feasibility studies for an offshore wind farm in the UK or a solar park in the Californian desert to the design of a new wind turbine or solar cell.
We can also encompass from the feasibility study, development, to the construction and financing of an entire wind/wave/tidal or solar park as a full service supplier.
