We have achieved step one of our mission to achieve both the reliability needed and with the inclusion of record percentages of renewable energy. As a result of the tremendous progress that has been made in both renewable energy sources and modern smart control technology,we are now able to synchronize the operating characteristic of both the sources and uses of both energy and water to integrate renewable energy at much higher levels than ever imagined while maintaining the mission critical capabilities.
Energy, electricity and water are critical to our continuing well-being and economic growth. The total energy needs of the water sector are growing rapidly. And as this growth continues it is becoming imperative to integrate more energy from renewables into the mix. Since the water processes must have high quality, reliable electricity on a “Mission critical” basis, wind and solar electricity are currently not acceptable unique sources as much as we want them.
Since we simply must have maximum renewable energy, the Altresco group has draw on it's broad resource base and succeeded in designing several systems in ways that will allow maximum renewable integration
Altresco is results oriented and we only undertake projects that will provide orders of magnitude more value to our clients and customers for each dollar invested
We understand that customers need stable, reliable, and reasonably priced energy and electricity to remain competitive.
Altresco develops combined heat and power and thermal energy storage systems for customers that make extensive use of electricity and thermal energy (e.g. water treatment, data centers, industrial operations, college campuses, remote communities, agriculture and food processing plants, etc.) to:
Deliver high quality energy and electricity – providing stable and reasonably priced energy (steam) and electricity to allow the customer to focus on their core business
Reduce the Carbon Footprint– minimizing on-site gas consumption, energy and electricity demands
Maximize use of renewable resources – increasing the use of renewable energy to allow the customer to meet corporate targets or comply with emerging regulations and assist the power system operator
Minimize or eliminate water consumption – reducing the water consumption for a generating facility so that it is less than 20% of the water used by a comparable coal plant and less than 15 % of the water used by a comparable nuclear facility.
We have added a robust Energy Storage Technology that can turn excess electricity on the grid into useable energy on-peak and also reduce carbon. Our technology can absorb much larger inflows of electricity than current thermal storage solutions. Our goal is to turn surplus energy and imbalances into benefits and reduce overall carbon production.
Altresco has a Proven Track Record
Our project involvement has ranged from developing, owning and operating facilities to being best supporting actors in several first of successful "first of" projects.
Our signature style of bringing people from all sides of the table into a collaborative, rather than competitive group of stakeholders has never been more appropriate.
The past 10 years have brought a whole new universe of energy creation into being. This has been the most significant innovation period in recorded history. Now we need to take a bit of time to work together and realize that it will take all of our knowledge and expertise to re imagine the energy industry in a way that will capture all of the benefits.
The Altresco team is a group of individuals who are able to see the aspects of our current toolkit of energy production. This technology agnostic, solution focused group of industry professionals have international experience in project development, variable generation integration, transmission and grid operations, micro grids, thermal engineering, finance, and resource evaluation.
