Renewable energy is energy which comes from renewable (naturally replenished) resources.
Renewable sources of energy are wind power, solar power (thermal, photovoltaic and concentrated), hydro- electric power, tidal power, geothermal energy and biofuel and biomass energy.

Renewable energy technologies offer significant advantages over conventional ones for meeting energy needs worldwide.

With the steadily increasing demand for renewable energy worldwide, it has never been more important to find a translation company with a familiarity in the terminology of the renewable energy sector and a proven expertise in the field. A translation company that has capacity to handle large scale multi-language projects and meet tight deadlines. 


Global challenge 
With the increasing worldwide demand for energy, the development of renewable energy has become one of the most important issues facing the global community nowadays.

World summits and conferences are being held all over the globe in an attempt to ensure that future energy demands are met in a more sustainable way by using renewable sources of energy.

For example, the European Union sets ambitious targets for all member states, such that the EU will reach a 20% share of energy from renewable sources by year 2020.

The success of such a global challenge is based on the ability of all international shareholders and stakeholders to intercommunicate and interact.

Language barriers can pose a great obstacle to the efficient communication and cooperation of all interested parties.

Based on this international symbiosis comes the need for professional translation services providers with expertise in the field of renewable energy.


Logistics/transference of energy
Most renewable energy projects are large-scale and they cross national borders.

For example Niagara Falls provides energy for both Canada and the USA.

The same applies to the HydroQuebec project. Successful professional translations allow different language groups and cultures to communicate effectively with each other and share the benefits of renewable energy.


Renewable energy production
While most of the management communication can be carried out in English, there are vertical communication streams that contribute to the production process. The workers involved in the renewable energy sector must clearly understand what they are being asked to do and how to ensure a safe working process.

One badly translated line in a document can send out the wrong message, possibly resulting in life-threatening situations for the workers in the renewable energy industry.


Renewable energy marketing
There are significant opportunities for companies that operate in the renewable energy technology development industry to market their activities internationally. Accurate translation is therefore the most effective way to reach these rapidly expanding international markets.

Successful product launch requires that advertisements and informational materials along with technology and all supporting documents be available to customers in their language.


Changing technology/New terms and concepts
One of the biggest challenges in the renewable energy sector is the constant change and development of terms and concepts. Those terms and concepts must be communicated consistently and accurately into the target Language/languages. The world of renewable energy is rapidly evolving, resulting in the need for parallel synergies in both translation quality and technology.


Subject matter expertise
A thorough vendor selection process is crucial to ensure high quality translation. Often with vendors having to prove their capabilities in translating and localising the key technical terminology, abbreviations and phrases common to the renewable energy industry.

Specific areas of expertise can include:

Biofuel and biomass energy
Geothermal energy
Solar thermal power
Water and tidal treatment
Wind power
