GHD in power

The subject of power in this current era of climate consciousness and sustainability is an ever increasing consideration and theme for many of our clients and the diverse market sectors they participate in.

GHD's approach incorporates whole-of-life considerations while delivering professional technical services across the entire power value chain - from generator to consumer. We provide advice on a diverse range of power generation and delivery technology across:

  • Conventional fossil fuel power generation utilising coal, gas, diesel and waste heat fuels (e.g. sub-critical and supercritical coal-fired plants, open cycle and combined cycle gas turbines, reciprocating engines and cogeneration)
  • Renewable energy including solar PV, wind, solar thermal, hydroelectric, pumped hydro, tidal, geothermal and biomass
  • Transmission and distribution networks including power lines and substations to efficiently, effectively and reliably deliver power to meet clients needs
  • Emerging energy storage technologies such as batteries, and their applications within microgrids, that are transforming the energy sector
  • Grid connection of both generation and large end-users, including feasibility, system modelling and negotiation of performance standards and access arrangements
  • Regulation of electricity networks, including due diligence and advisory services for regulatory determinations

Today, GHD is helping organisations tackle a complex future being shaped by disruptive forces and increased regulation and scrutiny.
