Solar power is the most abundant energy source on Earth. Solar photovoltaic applications have grown exponentially worldwide in the last few years. Current figures show a total installed capacity of 760 GW by the end of 2020 and its combined output represents around 3% of the global electricity demand. Solar energy has become pivotal to the decarbonization of electricity generation. Additionally, its use will help reach the global goals for limiting global warming. With this in mind, more and more people are looking to the sun for their energy solutions.
DLZ has gained expertise in solar energy due to its subsidiary in Latin America, DLZ Carbon. Engineering services for the balance-of-plant (BoP) of solar installations in Costa Rica include, but are not limited to:
- Earthworks design
- Access road design
- Stormwater management
- Cable conduits
- Service and control buildings
The benefits of solar energy extend even beyond its environmental impact. It can also reduce the cost of electricity, create jobs, and contribute to a resilient electrical grid (Source: Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy). The investment in solar power solutions has lasting effects both environmentally and economically.
