In the summer of 2003, a massive power outage blanketed a huge chunk of the United States and parts of Canada, bringing cities and communities to a screeching halt. The nation’s— and world’s—power infrastructure became a focus of sudden and increased scrutiny, and facilities began to consider new and better ways to improve their operations to prevent and manage similar future catastrophes.
R.E. Warner knows the importance of a reliable means to meet the demand for power. A dependable power source is the backbone of society. With an unparalleled commitment to serving this market, we’ve partnered with several major names in the nation’s energy sector to implement measures to improve system reliability through upgrades, repairs and expansion.
Our multi-disciplined team of engineers and architects serves as a trusted resource for utility companies and major industrial complexes seeking to create and revamp substations and transmission and distribution systems. Because the success and security of our clients’ operations goes beyond power stability, we’ve designed and developed uninterruptible power supplies and emergency safeguards across several sectors, including municipal and industrial facilities.
In addition to this expected consistency, power plants are now also under immense pressure to reduce their carbon footprint in the short term. In the long term, political administrations in Washington and the rest of the world are calling on power facilities to be fully carbon-free by the year 2050. We’re ready to help plants meet the demand for clean energy by upgrading out-of-date facilities without sacrificing shutdowns during transition.
