Renewable Energy

Renewable Energy

The United States currently relies heavily on coal, oil, and natural gas for its energy. Fossil fuels are non-renewable, that is, they draw on finite resources that will eventually dwindle, becoming too expensive or too environmentally damaging to retrieve. In contrast, renewable energy resources such as wind and solar energy are constantly replenished and will never run out. Renewable energy is energy which comes from natural resources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, and geothermal heat which are renewable (i.e., naturally replenished).

From site selection to asset management, we provide extensive services along the entire value chain. EST works with leaders in solar and wind technology and the energy sector to bring you the most state-of-the-art energy products on the market. With our experience and talented professionals we continue to work collaboratively with customers and clients as a local partner, ensuring mutual respect and accountability to deliver the best projects and service possible. We believe generating electricity from renewable resources will play an increasingly important role in the transition to cleaner energy. We understand it’s not just about the health of the planet, it’s also about the well-being and prosperity of the businesses and communities who partner with us.

Learn about ESTs different types of renewable energy applications and how they work.

Wind energy is a converted form of solar energy. The sun’s radiation heats different parts of the earth at different rates, most notably during the day and night, but also when different surfaces (i.e., water and land) absorb or reflect at different rates. READ MORE

Solar electric technology converts sunlight directly into electricity. It works any time the sun is shining, but more electricity is produced when the light is more intense (i.e., a sunny day) and is striking the solar electric modules directly (e.g., when the rays of sunlight are perpendicular to the solar electric modules).
