Across the spectrum of renewable energies and technologies, supply chain efficiency and cost competitiveness continue to be a key aspect of enabling market adoption.
PLG Consulting has been involved in market analysis, operations, network design, procurement, site selection, and innovation for renewable energy and the circular economy for more than ten years.
PLG Consulting’s representative work and expertise in the logistics of various clean technologies include:
PLG Consulting is at the forefront of the transformation of the global liquid fuels supply. Specifically, PLG Consulting has been deeply involved in the renewable diesel space and its attendant issues and challenges in optimizing inbound feedstocks and outbound finished product to the growing low carbon fuel standard (LCFS) markets.
PLG Consulting has been tasked by its clients to help bring logistics solutions as innovative as the mission itself – capturing and repurposing the 90+% of post-consumer waste plastics that currently end up in landfills, oceans, waterways, beaches, and elsewhere.
Since the advent of utility-scale wind development in North America began in the mid-2000s, PLG Consulting has assisted global wind OEMs and developers to optimize logistics and lower overall project costs.
As rapid technological advances have brought new clean sources of energy and basic materials to market, logistics solutions needed to support those innovations have, in some cases, not even been invented yet. Traditional approaches to supply chain elements such as sourcing, mode selection, inventory management, technology, and network optimization may require modification or outright disruption in order to ensure that renewable technologies can be reliably and cost-efficiently implemented.
PLG Consulting has helped build optimal supply chain solutions around emerging clean energy sources that required, in some cases, entirely new methodologies. For example, when European wind energy companies first entered the North American market in the late 2000s, moving wind turbine components via rail was a completely new concept for the industry that had been almost exclusively using truck and vessel. PLG Consulting helped numerous firms design and implement rail securement, procurement, site selection, transloading, rolling stock, and fixturing solutions for blades, towers, and nacelles that had not previously existed.
PLG Consulting experts have helped “turn the box” and answer the question, “How can we do this?” to help clients achieve ESG goals and bring green energy solutions to the market. Project experience includes:
