Black & Veatch Urges APAC to Scale Low-Carbon Infrastructure for Decarbonisation

KUALA LUMPUR: Black & Veatch prompted Asia Pacific to rapidly identify and adopt the next generation of low-carbon and scalable infrastructure to accelerate its decarbonisation progress.

The next stage of renewable energy and alternative fuel development to achieve lower carbon emissions is complex. Project sites will be larger and more challenging, with many sites requiring connecting renewable energy resources in remote areas to the grid.

“Nevertheless, ample opportunities exist in the Asia Pacific to integrate a mix of different generation, transmission and distribution technologies at the right price point and the right time to achieve commercial and environmental success.

“Black & Veatch has been at the forefront of building critical energy infrastructure for several decades and is committed to supporting the rising energy needs in Asia Pacific with low and no-carbon energy sources,” said Black & Veatch President for Asia Pacific and India, Narsingh Chaudhary.

As Asia Pacific economies transition from a carbon-based economy to an electron- and molecule-based one, the region must find the right energy mix for near-term requirements and long-term change.

Hence, liquefied natural gas (LNG) can support the shift from coal and the additional energy mix needed to fuel economic growth in developing markets.

Meanwhile, energy storage technologies such as battery energy storage systems (BESS) and pumped storage hydropower (PSH) can enhance energy security by balancing sudden and significant drops in power production from variable renewable energy resources to improve grid reliability and stability.

In the longer term, hydrogen has the potential to provide seasonal energy storage and serve as the missing link for utilities, commercial businesses and industries seeking to operate sustainably.

Better-planned and designed transmission systems including interconnection lines and substations as well as switching facilities, will help Asia Pacific address voltage and frequency variability and grid code requirements across the grid.

Additionally, Chaudhary will present global best practices for scaling low-carbon technologies in carbon reduction and share his insights on the role of gas and LNG as a transition fuel at Future Energy Asia 2024 taking place from 15 to 17 May in Bangkok, Thailand.
