Historically the capture of agricultural methane for electrical generation has not been economic for small farms. Essex is currently evaluating the technical and economic feasibility of several promising options to expand an existing “Cow Power” program to make small farm participation feasible.
Essex is the lead technical resource in a collaborative phased effort to evaluate the feasibility of repowering five existing dams on an historic American Heritage River in Rhode Island.
Low Impact Hydropower Institute (LIHI) and Renewable Energy Credit (REC) certifications for new and existing hydrpower projects.
The Essex Partnership is providing engineering and regulatory assistance to a mid-sized American manufacturing company to develop a low impact hydropower facility. Once operational the project will displace approximately 30% of their current annual electrical demand with clean, renewable and economic energy produced on-site. Essex completed an initial evaluation of the site and then helped [...]
The Essex Partnership managed internal and external communications for NU’s Green Team during the development of the “Northern Solutions” initiative and the concept for a high voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission project with Hydro-Quebec.
