On Friday, May 30, Ameresco acquired a California-based consulting business that will be integrated into Applied Energy Group (AEG). The business is the utility consulting group division of EnerNOC and adds 27 consultants that specialize in three areas: (1) DSM Planning and Forecasting, (2) DSM Program Evaluation, and (3) DSM Engineering Services. The acquired business has been renamed Applied Energy Group.
Ameresco’s AEG team has partnered with the group in the past, and recently the teams have worked jointly on a large project for the utilities in Maryland. The group’s consulting customers include large utilities such as SCE, PG&E, and SDG&E in California, Hawaiian Electric Company, Oklahoma Gas and Electric, Ameren in Illinois, Avista in Washington, and Ontario Power Authority and BC Hydro in Canada. Combining the teams provides an opportunity for AEG to increase the utility consulting business cross-country more rapidly, serve our respective customers more effectively, and to provide an even more extensive array of consulting services.
