For decades Ameresco has supported both CONUS and OCONUS U.S. Air Force sites—including Elmendorf, Hill, and McGuire Air Force Bases—to improve resiliency, reduce demand, and assure supply. We have diverse experience designing and installing energy, water and renewable technologies; and owning, operating and maintaining energy generation facilities. We bring a unique and realistic perspective to Air Force clients in areas of technical innovation, cost effective efficiency measures, and equipment performance.
We complete site assessments and energy projects at mission-critical Air Force sites where our work accommodates continuous operations in a variety of settings, including operations and operations support facilities, offices, hangars, maintenance shops, medical bays, classrooms, housing and common spaces, more energy-intensive laboratories, data centers, and industrial plant facilities.
We implement a wide variety of traditional and renewable energy, and water efficiency measures. Our assessment, design, construction management, operation and maintenance, and performance assurance work is completed by our in-house team of engineers and energy professionals, providing accountability and added security for Air Force energy projects.
President Obama Remarks at Hill Air Force Base
President Barack Obama delivered remarks at Hill Air Force Base in Utah, outlining his plan to train 75,000 solar workers by the year 2020. The backdrop for the event was a solar energy plant designed and built by Ameresco that has been in operation since the year 2009.
Hill Air Force Base awarded Ameresco the delivery order to design, construct, operate and maintain a landfill gas to energy (LFGTE) along with several other traditional energy conservation measures (ECMs). The LFGTE system has given Hill AFB a source of renewable energy and a significant reduciton in annual energy costs.
Elmendorf Air Force Base entered a partnership with Ameresco to design and implement an energy savings performance contract (ESPC). The project utilized locally available natural gas as an energy component.The annual green benefits from this carbon reduction equal 222,765 tons of CO2.
