Renewable energy solutions

Renewable energy presents a revolutionary paradigm shift in the way we produce, utilize and store power. It encompasses an extensive range of technologies that leverage natural processes to generate energy in usable forms such as electricity, heating, and transportation fuels.

Arrow supports engineering design for the most prevalent forms of renewable energy including solar, wind, and hydropower. Solar energy harnesses the power of sunlight, converting it into electricity through photovoltaic cells or capturing it for heating purposes. Wind energy utilizes the kinetic energy of wind to spin turbines and generate electricity. Hydropower relies on the force of flowing or falling water to drive turbines and generate power.

Beyond these familiar sources, other types of renewable energy are increasingly gaining traction. Geothermal energy harnesses the heat from the Earth's core and converts it into electricity or direct heating. Biomass energy involves utilizing organic materials like plants and agricultural waste to produce heat, electricity, or biofuels. Tidal energy harnesses the power of ocean tides to generate electricity.

As renewable energy becomes more prominent, energy storage systems will be critical to ensure that the energy grid remains resilient and reliable.
