IT Support for Renewable Energy
The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 is designed to strengthen renewable energy technologies and combat climate change. With the increased focus and investment in renewable energy, this is an exciting time for the renewable energy sector.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, renewable energy currently generates about 20% of all U.S. electricity. In 2022, “solar and wind are expected to add more than 60% of the utility-scale generating capacity to the U.S. power grid (46% from solar, 17% from wind).”
K3 provides IT support for a wide variety of companies in the renewable energy industry, including solar, wind, bio-energy, geothermal, hydro-power, and marine energy. Our services include:
Remote access for users
Renewable energy operations can be in remote locations. To keep employees connected, a fast, reliable network is important. K3 provides managed cloud services that are accessible wherever employees are located, which keeps your business running safely and securely. Cloud services are scalable and can grow with your company.
As with other critical infrastructure, renewable energy operations need to stay online, secure and high performing. Rather than adding internal IT staff, K3 provides 24/7/365 support for your employees to avoid downtime. Our support desk is just a call, chat, or email away.
Cybersecurity management and training
Renewable energy companies need cybersecurity protection and training to keep data secure and operations running. We put systems in place and training for your employees so they can identify and avoid cyberattacks by criminals, foreign entities, or internal threats.
Regulatory compliance and safety
Renewable energy companies need to adhere to regulations, which can change as the industry evolves. K3 works with you to stay compliant, ensuring networks are up-to-date and working efficiently. This limits risks, service interruptions and repair costs.
Storage and infrastructure performance
Whether you are an existing company or new to the market, K3 will analyze your operations, storage and network needs, and regulatory requirements. We make recommendations on enterprise-level solutions for your email, teleconference, business applications, reporting, data storage, cybersecurity and industry-specific software and apps.
Application and vendor management
Renewable energy companies may use a variety of proprietary and third-party applications every day, including production, usage, mapping and financial reporting. K3 works with vendors on your behalf to handle support issues and system upgrades.
Disaster recovery and business continuity
We make sure your systems and data are backed up and protected, so you are prepared for any challenge. This helps your company avoid downtime and lost data.
