ESG Matters

Energy
For Good

The energy transition will take more than a flip of a switch.

A sustainable, responsible pathway toward carbon neutrality is a call for not only renewables, but also balance. Using a well-rounded strategic approach that embraces environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors, WattBridge is here to deliver energy security for Texas and the world, for the present and the future.

Our platform is not a carbon copy of anything else available in the power market. A fleet unlike any other, our plants generate energy in a way that makes renewable growth faster, the future greener, and people’s lives better. While we focus on keeping the lights on in widespread communities today, we also take steps with hydrogen fueling and battery storage technology to power the world for many more decades.

Carbon Displacement

reduces
greenhouse gas

A recent report by ICF concluded that the WattBridge portfolio delivers dramatic decarbonization by displacing older oil, gas steam, and coal assets. The fleet emits 20% less carbon than gas steam units and 50% less than coal, which reduces carbon emissions by ~268 kT/year, equivalent to 30 million gallons of gasoline per year.

Energy Security

Lowers Price of
Meeting Demand

ICF analysis considered replacing 2,400 MW of coal with three options: renewables only, renewables plus a 2-hour battery system, and renewables plus the 2,100 MW WattBridge portfolio. The study concluded that the WattBridge solution met demand while saving at least $3.2 billion compared to the next best alternative.

Alternative Fuels

Targeting net-zero power generation

PROENERGY and WattBridge have made a significant investment to continue reducing aeroderivative emissions through an alternative fuels R&D program that includes ammonia and hydrogen. By advancing the PROENERGY string-test facility—a unique, plant-level installation that mirrors real-world operating conditions while free from the grid—the companies are now fully hydrogen-fuel ready. Testing in 2022 will start below the established 30-percent hydrogen mix and make incremental increases to a 50-percent mix, with a long-term goal of a 100-percent hydrogen burn.

Sustainable Strategies

Thinking Green
Beyond Operations

WattBridge seeks to improve the ESG impact of each plant, from construction to operations and maintenance. Our generating stations leverage the unique PROENERGY condition-based maintenance and overhaul strategies, which reduce the need for newly manufactured LM6000 engine components. By expertly repairing and refurbishing these parts, we conservatively avoid more than 24 metric tons of CO2 for every engine, or more than 2,000 metric tons for our Texas operations.
