Renewable energy

Global solar, wind, wave, tidal and hybrid renewable energy solutions for a low- carbon future.

Renewable energy capacity across the world is growing exponentially.

According to the International Renewable Energy Agency, a further 167 gigawatts of renewable power was installed worldwide in 2017, up from 164 gigawatts in 2016 and 157 gigawatts in 2015 — the third consecutive year that more renewable than conventional energy capacity was added.

Cutting costs with innovation

Innovation is key to reducing the cost of renewables and ensuring grid resilience as the conventional centralized system of generation disappears.

Over the past 10 years, Mott MacDonald has provided engineering services for 30 gigawatts of hydropower, 80 gigawatts of wind, 17 gigawatts of solar photovoltaic, 6 gigawatts of concentrated solar power, and 12 gigawatts of geothermal capacity.

We have worked on innovative projects to incorporate energy storage to maximize energy yield, provide energy security, limit variability of output to the grid, and provide ancillary services to the network operator.

A century of energy expertise

Our energy expertise goes back a long way. From Sir Murdoch MacDonald’s work on the Aswan Dam in Egypt, our engineers have been working for more than 100 years to help deliver power to people and communities.

We have worked on many landmark power projects across the world, covering a range of technologies, often with technical challenges requiring novel solutions as “firsts” in the industry. It is a proud heritage and one we strive constantly to continue.
