Applus+ approaches the challenge of energy transition through innovation, assisting companies to evolve towards new technologies and diversified and sustainable sources of energy.
Applus+ participates in discussion forums and play an important role in technological research, inspection and monitoring of renewable energy infrastructures (biomass, biofuel, onshore and offshore wind energy, photovoltaic energy and green hydrogen).
For wind energy, we provide the industry with expert knowledge and solutions in the non-destructive testing (NDT) inspection of large construction projects. These include inspections at several wind farms in the UK and Ireland.
We have provided inspection services during the construction of alternative energy infrastructures, such as the building of a biofuel plant in the Netherlands, and we have been assigned a project for NDT testing for a major biomass plant in Lakeside, UK.
We have participated in major greenhydrogen projects across Europe, providing, among other services, advanced NDT services for the new construction of two hydrogen pipelines in the Netherlands.
To encourage the adoption of hydrogen technology applied to the automotive sector, Applus+ participated in the positioning paper “Green Hydrogen in Automotive Road Transport”, published by EARPA’s Foresight Group Energy Powertrains and Electrification (EPE).
We are also working to address the potential of fuel cells in the automotive sector. Our in-house internal GEMSTONE project is developing a Hydrogen (H2) refuelling simulator, that ensures processing safety and vehicleinfrastructure interoperability. The new Horizon Europe Transport project ZEFES will develop simulation platforms for Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV).
In 2022, Applus+ joined Klima Energy Transformation Fund (sponsored by Alantra in partnership with Enagás), a commitment to the energy transition that will reinforce our collaboration with emerging companies involved in smart grids, energy storage, green hydrogen, circular economy, digitization, sustainable energy efficiency and transport.
Renewable energy project management requires a wide range of capabilities, technologies, and energy engineers and energy consultants that Applus+ can provide worldwide, protecting our client’s interests and mitigating risks at all project phases.
