Energy

Access to energy is a driver to development. NIRAS delivers comprehensive and sustainable energy solutions based on stakeholder participation and detailed attention to local conditions.

We promote synergies in energy and development cooperation. For example increasing quantities of non-recyclable waste in cities and of organic waste in rural areas offer enormous potential for sustainable energy and heat generation. NIRAS energy experts join forces with our urban and rural development specialists to make this a reality.

We are at the forefront of developing innovative energy finance schemes benefiting the world’s poorest people and ensuring the equitable delivery of clean, sustainable energy. We have furthermore realized the biggest wind farms in Northern Europe and transferred and adapted this Know-How to developing and transition countries.

NIRAS promotes energy efficiency in various ways including conducting energy audits, updating building codes and piloting projects for industrial efficiency.

We also recognize the strong link between climate change mitigation and sustainable energy and offer expertise in identification and preparation of Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and Joint Implementation (JI) projects.
