HET AANDRIJVEN VAN DATAGESTUURDE VEILIGHEID.

The renewable energy sector is rapidly growing and transforming the global energy landscape, driven by the urgent need to mitigate climate change, enhance energy security, and harness clean and sustainable sources of power.

This sector encompasses a diverse range of technologies, including solar, wind, hydroelectric, geothermal, and bioenergy, each playing a crucial role in the transition towards a low-carbon economy.

Solar Energy: Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems convert sunlight directly into electricity, offering a clean and abundant source of energy. The deployment of solar PV installations, both utility-scale and distributed, has experienced exponential growth in recent years, driven by declining costs and supportive policies.

Wind Energy: Wind turbines harness the kinetic energy of wind to generate electricity, making wind energy one of the most cost-effective and rapidly deployable renewable energy sources. Advancements in turbine technology, coupled with favorable wind resources, have propelled the growth of onshore and offshore wind farms worldwide.

Hydroelectric Power: Hydroelectric power plants utilize the gravitational force of flowing water to spin turbines and generate electricity. While large-scale hydropower projects have been operational for decades, there is a growing focus on small-scale and pumped-storage hydropower facilities to enhance flexibility and energy storage capabilities.

Geothermal Energy: Geothermal energy harnesses the heat from the Earth's interior to generate electricity or provide direct heating and cooling solutions. This renewable source is particularly valuable for its baseload power generation capabilities and potential for district heating and cooling applications.

Bioenergy: Bioenergy encompasses a range of technologies that convert organic matter, such as agricultural residues, forestry waste, and dedicated energy crops, into various forms of energy, including electricity, heat, and biofuels. Advanced bioenergy technologies, like second-generation biofuels and biogas, offer promising pathways for sustainable energy production.

CONNECTED GAS DETECTION AND LONE WORKER MONITORING FOR THE RENEWABLE ENERGY INDUSTRY.

Blackline has a solution to mitigate risks for renewable energy production workers that begins with connected wearable gas detectors to help protect them from potentially deadly gas exposures. These devices also offer critical lone-worker capabilities, such as fall and no-motion detection, missed check-in alarms, and an SOS latch for immediate assistance. The second level adds additional protection for the safety of your entire operations, keeping teams aware of potential dangers in real-time when they arise. Together these connected gas detection solutions help to ensure your team's safety until the end of their day at work.

Lone workers such as operators and technicians often work independently within the renewable energy industry and may require immediate assistance if an incident occurs.

MEER WETEN

With various hazards in the renewable energy industry and the requirement for confined space entries, workers need a connected safety solution like a G7 to ensure they are always safe.

Renewable Energy Toxic and Combustible Gas Hazards

  • Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) - This toxic gas can be released from geothermal power plants and biogas facilities that use organic matter as fuel. Exposure can cause respiratory issues, dizziness, and even death at high concentrations.
  • Sulfur dioxide (SO2) - Another toxic gas that can be present in geothermal and biodiesel production processes.
  • Ammonia (NH3) - Potentially released during biomass processing for bioenergy production, ammonia is a toxic gas that can cause respiratory issues and eye irritation.

 

Combustible Gases:

  • Methane (CH4) - A combustible gas produced during anaerobic digestion in biogas facilities and from the decomposition of biomass.
  • Hydrogen (H2) - An explosive gas that may be present in hydrogen fuel production processes for renewable electricity generation and industrial applications like steel production.
  • Hexane - A highly flammable solvent used in some biodiesel production processes, posing a fire and explosion risk
  • Combustible dusts - Biomass materials like wood pellets or agricultural residues can create combustible dust hazards if not properly handled and contained.

Renewables are set to surpass coal as the largest electricity source by early 2025

Renewable Energy Lone Worker Risks

  • Workers in the wind energy sector often have to work at significant heights while inspecting, maintaining, or repairing wind turbines. Falls from heights pose a severe risk of injury or fatality, especially for lone workers without immediate assistance.
  • Certain renewable energy operations, such as hydroelectric plants, may require workers to enter confined spaces with limited access and egress points. These confined spaces can pose risks of asphyxiation, entrapment, or exposure to hazardous atmospheres.
  • Renewable energy workers frequently work with heavy machinery, high-voltage equipment, and rotating components, which can pose risks of entanglement, electrocution, or crushing injuries, particularly for lone workers without supervision.
  • Many renewable energy sites are exposed to harsh weather conditions, such as high winds, extreme temperatures, or precipitation, which can increase the risk of accidents or injuries for lone workers.
  • Lone workers in the renewable energy sector may have to travel long distances to reach remote sites, increasing their exposure to transportation-related risks, such as vehicle accidents or breakdowns. To mitigate these risks, employers in the renewable energy sector must implement robust safety protocols, provide comprehensive training, and utilize appropriate personal protective equipment and communication systems to ensure the well-being of their lone workers.
