Grid Impact Study

Grid Impact Study
Grid Impact Study

We evaluate any connection impacts that the renewable energy plant may have on the local power grid - and identify if its generation will lead to any constraints or down-time. We perform detailed modelisation of the grid to check potential impacts on network stability and compliance with regulation of a newly integrated asset.

The services provided in the frame of the MetaPV project have met all our expectations

Pietro Menna,
European Commission

We are very proud to have realised the first Tier 4 100% solar-powered data centre in Africa. It was a leap frogging project for Ghana and for Africa as a while, as well as for Etix’s commitment to sustainability in bringing data and digitalization to today’s world energy. 3E was our owner engineer, guiding us in the realisation of this project from A to Z, with timely delivery of a challenging project in non-evident circumstances.

Sam Ankrah,
Etix - CEO

3E is, even after 20 years, a very young and dynamic company and I am sure that because of their innovative spirit, they will last for a long time and remain our prefered partner. My mere wish is: may we innovate together.

Luc Van den Bulcke,
DEME - CEO

3E is down to earth and visionary at the same time. 3E has put DEME in a pole position in the pioneering phases of C-Power and offshore wind, now delivering major parts of our business growth. For me, they are partners to keep our company at the forefront of international innovations.

Alain Bernard,
DEME - Director

3E was selected to do the Wind Energy Resource Mapping project for PNG. Their site engineers were able to tackle most of the practical issues of setting up a country-wide measurement campaign and deliver the results as expected.

Gerard Fae,
World Bank - Senior Infrastructure Specialist

We would like to thank 3E for its professionalism, flexibility, commitment and technical support from the early stages of our project up to the financial close. We are thrilled that this collaboration will continue during the construction and operation of the project.
