Effective implementation of renewable energy generation depends on careful analysis and plans. Our renewable energy team provides consulting and engineering services on wind, solar, hydroelectric and energy storage projects. We deliver project development services such as site evaluations, energy assessments, preliminary layouts, technology evaluations and grid planning. Once a project is under way, we work with our full range of in-house project specialists for design and construction services to support your renewable energy projects.

With a resume that includes hundreds of projects and more than 60,000 MW of capacity, our team is a leader in providing renewable energy services. We work with developers, independent power producers (IPPs) and utilities to develop, design and install wind, solar, hydro and energy storage projects, providing tailored support for your needs in all areas:

  • Generation: Our dedicated wind and solar teams can support your project from development through construction.
  • Environmental permitting: Regulatory knowledge to address challenges.
  • Financing and independent engineering: Experience and perspective to identify and mitigate risks on your important investments.
  • Grid planning: We help you find the right location and configuration to address intermittent sources.
  • Owner's engineer: let our team serve as an extension of your staff to see that your plans are followed and that your needs and expectations are met throughout the project life cycle.
  • Project delivery: We provide the approach that’s best for you, including design-bid-build, engineer-procure-construct (EPC), and design-build or program management.
  • Energy storage: Find ways to balance your loads to make renewable energy a more effective portfolio option.
  • Microgrids: We can integrate your renewable generation into an on-site power network that can build in redundancy and increase reliability.
  • Water-energy nexus: Innovation can help renewables address the strain on valuable water and power resources.

Renewable Energy Development

While renewable energy sources like wind and solar are clean, free and readily available, they are complex resources to harness. Developing renewable energy projects requires a comprehensive evaluation of every moving part, from concept to completion.

Our team provides a comprehensive overview of where your project stands, and we help guide your project through the development process. Our specialists cover every stage, from selecting sites to studying capacity and conducting energy assessments to providing due diligence. 

With engineering and consulting experience on more than 50,000 MW of renewable capacity under our belts, we can help you be certain your project is developed, designed and constructed to the highest standards.
