Energy Transition

Energy Transition

Climate change is widely acknowledged to be one of the greatest challenges facing humanity. Whether you are young or old, working to solve this is one of the most inspiring actions of the 21st Century. ABL Group, working in renewables, oil & gas and maritime sectors, has already pledged itself to the UN Global Compact Network UK, where one of the four major areas of responsible business action is the environment, to achieve a more equitable society. Last year, recognising the significant part we play in the energy sector, we elevated the Group’s focus on energy transition, where the impact can be greatest in achieving a Net Zero world.

The group is committed to driving renewable energy, carbon-reduction and sustainable technologies across our energy and oceans. To accelerate our efforts we have identified five major areas of focus for energy transition in addition to what we are doing already in renewables:

  • Electrification
  • Hydrogen / Ammonia Alternate Fuels
  • Emissions / Audit Assessment Abatement
  • Carbon Capture Utilisation & Storage (CCUS)
  • Climate Change Adaptation & Resilience

We have developed, delivered and continue to evolve cutting-edge services within our group in every one of the above areas and invite you to connect with us in your energy transition journey.

Challenges and opportunity in going green

The road to net-zero is paved with opportunities for innovation and growth, unlocking the potential for the unknown across energy and oceans. However, as with any area of the unknown, there are challenges and risks in developing energy transition and sustainable solutions, which need to be addressed and managed from the outset.

Challenges include:

  • With increasing technologies under R&D, how to identify the right and feasible technology for your industry, project or operations
  • Forecasting accurately the value creation and profit generated from a particular decarbonisation initiative
  • Emission reduction and carbon footprint of existing infrastructure and fossil fuel industries
  • Risk forecasting and HSEQ management around unknown and new technologies
  • Experience and knowledge gap in what is still a young industry

ABL Group combines recognised practical experience across our markets with cutting-edge engineering and technical expertise, to provide turn-key and fit-for-purpose technical solutions to decarbonise our sectors. We bring a technical authority across the renewable energy landscape, covering wind energy, energy storage, solar PV and hydrogen among others, as well as an understanding of the challenges facing different segments of energy and oceans in transitioning to net-zero.

Our consulting and engineering services cover a range of areas supporting sustainability across renewables, maritime and oil & gas, with support from feasibility and technical due diligence, to concept and detailed design, through to construction and operations.
