Renewables & Environment

Renewable energy is generally defined as energy that comes from resources which are naturally replenished on a human timescale.

Renewable energy replaces conventional fuels in four distinct areas: electricity generation, hot water/space heating, motor fuels, and rural (off-grid) energy services.

Based on REN21’s 2014 report, renewables contributed 19 percent to our energy consumption and 22 percent to our electricity generation in 2012 and 2013, respectively. Both, modern renewables, such as hydro, wind, solar and biofuels, as well as traditional biomass, contributed in about equal parts to the global energy supply. Worldwide investments in renewable technologies amounted to more than US$ 214 billion in 2013, with countries like China and the United States heavily investing in wind, hydro, solar and biofuels.

Benedetto works with Solar, BioEnergy, Wind, Geothermal, Hydro and Renewable companies.

We work across the complete industry life cycle from project development to power generation to transmission & distribution.

Within these industries, there are many roles available. As natural resources become more challenging to find and exploit the need to work with a truly global workforce provider become more essential.

The energy industry is the totality of all of the industries involved in the production and sale of energy, including fuel extraction, manufacturing, refining and distribution. Modern society consumes large amounts of fuel, and the energy industry is a crucial part of the infrastructure and maintenance of society in almost all countries.

Energy and public utilities consist of a range of industries that share some significant similarities.

These include:

  • Oil and Gas Extraction

  • Oil and Gas Transmission and Distribution

  • Power Generation and Transmission

  • Water

  • Waste Management

These industries are of global significance and include some of the world’s largest and best-resourced employers. Some of them, most notably oil and gas extraction, have come through the recession more easily than other sectors and have become increasingly important to graduates as a result.

Benedetto provides specialist independent power producers, power systems equipment manufacturers, technical and commercial talent to utilities, EPC´s and energy & environment consultancies across the entire energy value chain.
