We work with our customers on the transition to clean energy while providing practical solutions that improve the efficiency, sustainability and resilience of existing infrastructure.

From targeted net-zero emissions by 2050, to concerns around the security of supply, the increasing awareness of climate change impacts and rising energy prices, the UK energy sector is facing significant challenges from political, environmental and social pressures. To solve these challenges and meet the targets, major changes need to be made to the way energy is produced, transported, stored and used.

How Costain can help?

We continue to work with industry, transport and energy utilities to shape the decarbonised energy systems of the future. Our deep client insight and industry knowledge, gained over 155 years of delivering integrated complex programmes across multiple sectors, equips us to provide advice and practical options that help our clients and Government to effectively transition to a sustainable clean, green energy future and achieve better outcomes.

Energy transition

To meet the UK’s decarbonisation target, we must make significant changes in the way we heat our homes, power industry, generate electricity and fuel our vehicles. We believe one of the most practical options to achieve clean energy growth is hydrogen. Our engineering and consultancy experts are supporting clients, industrial clusters and key stakeholders with their strategic intentions around hydrogen to move us rapidly towards a decarbonised economy.
