McGeown Associates LLC. specializes in the evaluation and development of renewable energy technologies at client sites. We are adept at all phases of project development:
The firm has close working relationships with the Department of Energy National Laboratories that can help access the latest technology and renewable assessments.
Solar is a popular renewable energy resource. Costs and capabilities of solar technologies are constantly in flux. Photovoltaic products are most commonly deployed in the USA. Concentrating Solar Power and Solar Tower techniques are alternatives for larger power plants. McGeown Associates is proud to be instrumental in bringing this technology to Cyril E. King Airport on St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands.
Often overlooked, Solar Thermal is a good option for many locations to reduce fossil fuel consumption for hot water and heating applications.
Wind energy is an increasingly common resource for electricity production. It is one of the most cost effective renewable technologies, however its variable output limits its reliability for a utility.
Biomass can be used to produce electricity, transportation fuels, or chemicals. Organic products and wastes, such as forestry and animal by-products are now being utilized to create energy.
Geothermal energy taps the Earth's internal heat for a variety of uses, including electric power production, and the heating and cooling of buildings.
The ocean has massive potential for energy resources from waves, tides, and thermal gradients. Harnessing the power of the ocean is an emerging field.
