Renewable Energy

Today's fastest growing renewable energy technologies such as solar, wind, tidal, wave, and photovoltaic (PV) power provide both opportunities and challenges in order to meet the expectations of energy from sustainable sources.

Harnessing renewable energy provides technical challenges, ranging from the unpredictability of the natural energy sources themselves through to the reliability of the technology to transfer the energy into electrical power. This is made harder by the often remote locations of installations.

York EMC Services (YES) is an established, independent organisation offering a range of specialist services for the renewable energy industry, taking into account the essence of European safety standards, offering advice, support and testing, we enable manufacturers, installers and operators to deliver power safely and reliably.

Our Regulatory compliance and safety services range from laboratory to on-site testing and surveys through to Consultancy and training.
