Solar power is the most abundant energy source on Earth. Solar photovoltaic applications have grown exponentially worldwide in the last 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 and to reach the global goals for limiting global warming.
DLZ has gained expertise in solar power through its subsidiary in Latin America, DLZ Carbon. Engineering services for the balance-of-plant (BoP) of solar installations in Costa Rica have included earthworks design, access road design, stormwater management, cable conduits, and service and control buildings.
