Black & Veatch and ENACT Systems have formed a strategic partnership designed to elevate commercial solar project management in Southeast Asia.
Black & Veatch’s Global Distributed Energy business will combine its experience and EPC offerings with the ENACT cloud-based platform to automate development and deployment processes for distributed solar projects across Southeast Asia.
By digitizing the entire project design and development process, the platform helps manage the project design, management, financing, execution and asset management needs across multiple countries in the region, including Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam. In doing so, the platform will help streamline efforts while delivering greater efficiencies across the entire solar project life cycle.
“As a global leader in renewable energy, Black & Veatch has contributed to more than 2,000 solar PV installations around the world. Pairing our deep technical expertise in renewables with ENACT’s unique cloud-based platform will allow us to broaden and expand our EPC offerings within the region, particularly when it comes to the growing commercial rooftop solar market. Embracing this advanced technology reflects Black & Veatch’s commitment to innovation and working in new ways.”Mitesh Patel, director of Black & Veatch’s renewable energy business in Asia.
“Distributed energy, led by solar, will continue to grow as commercial and industrial customers in Southeast Asia look to reduce fixed costs while benefitting from third-party financing. In the post-COVID-19 world, the complexity of renewable project development will only increase as business teams continue to work remotely, avoiding physical engagement while still getting work done on time. Digital platforms will be even more crucial to ensure timely and effective transactions throughout this time.”Deep Chakraborty, CEO of ENACT Systems.
