The growth in global demand for energy and the problems related to using fossil fuels and nuclear power has led to a steady rise in demand for renewable energy sources. The 2008 climate and energy package adopted by the EU proposes that 20% of total energy consumption should come from renewable sources by 2020. In order to meet this target a massive increase in renewable energy sources is required across the entire EU.
For 5 billion years the sun has supplied everything we need. One of the most promising methods of using this energy lies in photovoltaics. This uses solar cells to transform sunlight directly into electrical power: today there is already huge demand for PV systems in many European countries.
PORR Umwelttechnik GmbH is an expert partner in this area, both in Austria and abroad. PUT offers the following services for ground-mounted and building integrated systems:
- Consulting and project evaluation
- Design and turnkey construction of PV systems
- Support in issues related to system financing
- Operating and maintaining PV systems
Geothermal energy is an energy source whose applications include heating buildings, process heat or generating electricity.
PUT offers services related to consulting and design for the construction of loop fields right through to building and operating complete plants for heating and cooling.
- Design and planning (3D modelling for the thermal analysis as a basis for permits, permit applica-tions, etc.)
- Thermal response tests (TRT)
- Installing downhole heat exchangers and loop fields
- Building and operating complete plants for heating and cooling
Wind power has long played an important role in generating power from renewable sources. PORR Umwelttechnik GmbH offers all construction services which are needed to build a turnkey wind power plant or wind farm. What is more we are able to take over the subsequent operation of the plant and provide uninterrupted maintenance.
Whether it is composed of wood, plant matter or other organic waste, biomass holds great importance in the field of renewable energy. Particularly because it allows the generation of so-called baseload power, in contrast to wind or solar power for example. Together with carefully selected partners, PORR Umwelttechnik GmbH offers turnkey construction of plants in every size.
