Thermal sources and loads are a critical component of the overall energy mix and any robust look at your organization must include an analysis of the role thermal energy plays. Group IV Solar takes an energy platform agnostic approach to development which maximizes the bottom line of our client-partners.
Critical for 24/7
Power users such as mining operations and hospitals require consistent power 24/7 which simply cannot be served by solar + battery systems alone. Sites with the requirement for process heat (or chilling) may be well suited to a Combined Heat & Power (CHP) platform.
Moving towards decarbonization
Our projects use natural gas as a thermal fuel wherever possible which is the cleanest of all fossil fuels. Any realistic movement towards decarbonization must come to terms with the role natural gas has as a transition fuel. However, transition means eventual elimination and Group IV Solar guarantees its client-partners that their electricity needs will be met with 100% renewable fuel sources by 2030.
