Renewable Energy Turnkey Design, Engineering Services, and Collaboration for Sustainability Leaders

Renewable energy is power that endures. When the power goes out, renewable energy can help utilities to keep providing safe drinking water and can help critical healthcare facilities to remain operational.

In addition, renewable energy offers emissions-free power with zero fuel cost, improved power quality and enhanced resilience to a stressed grid. That’s why renewable energy is being embraced with renewed vigor by utilities, municipalities, government agencies, commercial and industries (C&I) entities and communities.

McKim & Creed provides turnkey engineering and surveying services for a multitude of renewable energy systems. These include solar photovoltaic (PV), cogeneration, combined heat and power (CHP) energy storage, microgrids, geothermal and medium-voltage (MV) systems. Our services range from initial studies and feasibility analysis to complete design and program management. And our experience covers the primary types of renewable energy system installation, including ground mount, rooftop and canopy.

In fact, the renewable energy professionals at McKim & Creed have designed, surveyed and engineered more than 1,000 megawatts of solar PV projects. And our experience with renewable energy and storage projects spans a multitude of project types, like investor-owned utilities, electric membership corporations (EMCs), hospitals, universities, military installations, C&Is and government agencies.

A well-planned, well-designed renewable energy system not only conserves environmental and fiscal resources; it also keeps critical infrastructure running. Even when the power goes out.

Analysis and Modeling

Using the latest analysis technique and simulation software, we can model the feasibility of any renewable energy project and optimize for energy production, load reduction, cost-savings, demand reduction, resiliency, or any combination.

Energy Generation

Photovoltaics form the backbone of our renewable energy systems. From commercial systems to utility-scale, we provide turnkey engineering services from civil, mechanical, structural, to electrical. Studies can include load flow analysis, short circuit current, arc flash, to more complex predictive or post energization harmonic analyses.

Energy Storage Systems

Energy storage is more viable than ever with numerous options from lithium to flow batteries. We partner with leading ESS providers to provide ac coupled solutions for existing (or new) PV systems; similarly, the merits and efficiencies of dc coupled systems can be explored where needed or appropriate. We work with you to understand use cases from resiliency, to energy offset, to demand reduction, to reactive power control, and others. Ensuring safety and compliancy are particularly important for ESS. All systems are engineered with full compliance and with long term considerations.

Microgrids and Resiliency

For integrated solutions, microgrids can be the bridge that combines energy generation with demand, efficiency, and management. We analyze, design, and integrate to balance components with contemporary and secure microgrid controllers.
