Founded in 2000, Ameresco, Inc. (NYSE: AMRC) is a leading publicly traded energy services provider specializing in energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions for the U.S. federal government. Ameresco's core business is developing and delivering comprehensive energy efficiency, energy management and renewable energy solutions, as well as providing ongoing operation and maintenance services associated with these solutions. We assist in arranging financing to make possible the implementation of energy solutions for Federal and other clients without ready access to the capital necessary for the up-front investment these modernization projects require.
At Ameresco, our people - their expertise, dedication and commitment to partnership and innovation - are our greatest strength. In light of the unique requirements and culture within the Federal sector, we maintain a Federal Group as a direct report to the Chief Executive Officer, alongside regional groups that support non-Federal customers nationwide. This organizational structure is sustainable because of the success Ameresco has had maintaining a portfolio of Federal ESPC projects in every phase of the typical project lifecycle.
Our experience ranges from the development, design and financing phases to construction, implementation, operation and maintenance of comprehensive energy and water solutions and renewable energy plants. Ameresco is also pioneering microgrid and energy security systems that are flexible, resilient, scalable and utilize a combination of renewable power generation and energy conservation and load reduction measures. Ameresco provides these systems through 20-year Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) at a Guaranteed Maximum Price per kWh that is usually less than purchasing electricity directly from the grid. Ameresco makes this possible by leveraging its considerable energy project development experience to design cost-effective solutions tailored to each customer’s individual needs and by taking advantage of federal, state, and utility incentives to subside the systems’ overall costs.
Ameresco's Federal projects have a demonstrated record of reducing the energy intensity within buildings and facilities and revitalizing aging infrastructure with long-term befits that include reduced energy consumption, carbon emissions and lifecycle costs.
