About Ameresco Federal Solutions

Ameresco, Inc. is a leading energy efficiency and energy infrastructure company. Ameresco’s solutions range from upgrades to facilities and energy infrastructure to the development, construction and operation of renewable energy plants, all funded through tailored financial solutions. We work with customers on both sides of the meter to reduce operating expenses, upgrade and maintain facilities, stabilize energy costs, improve occupancy comfort levels, increase energy reliability and enhance the environment.

Ameresco specializes in public-private partnerships like Energy Savings Performance Contacts (ESPCs), Utility Energy Service Contracts (UESCs), utilities privatization and Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs). These budget-neutral tools leverage private sector capital and expertise to upgrade facilities and generate power without dedicated appropriated funding. These cost-effective investments reduce overhead expenses, modernize facility infrastructure and provide Federal sites much-needed energy security and resiliency. The projects also create 95 jobs for every $10 million of investment.

Ameresco maintains an entire business unit dedicated exclusively to satisfying the energy needs of Federal Government agencies. Our subject matter expertise and successful implementation of innovative projects has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Energy, the Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Green Building Council and the White House Council on Environmental Quality.
