Ameresco UK Named as an Energy Innovator by Independent Analyst Firm

Broad range of services, invoice management and technical design ability highlighted as strengths

FRAMINGHAM, MA and LONDON, UK – May 23, 2016 – Ameresco, Inc. (NYSE: AMRC), a leading energy efficiency and renewable energy company, has been named as one of the UK’s most innovative energy services companies by independent research firm Verdantix.

In its Green Quadrant UK Energy Services report, Verdantix highlighted Ameresco’s strengths and differentiators, such as its ability to provide a broad set of energy services, its energy invoice management and its technical design of complex CHP and renewable energy systems. Based on the green quadrant analysis and its scores in other areas, this places Ameresco UK in the ‘Innovators’ category.

The report also highlighted Ameresco UK as one of the top three UK firms in terms of capabilities.

Its broad set of energy services makes Ameresco UK a good fit for buyers looking for supply management and demand services from a single provider, according to the report. Its organisational set up should appeal to energy directors keen to work with an independent and specialist energy services provider, whilst its innovative heat reclaim project with Sainsbury’s was highlighted as an example of the sort of work organisations pushing energy management projects beyond the well-known wins should consider.

Ameresco has also already committed to increasing the visibility of its UK delivery capabilities, with the recent appointment of Britta MacIntosh as Vice President for Ameresco UK’s London operations.

Ms. MacIntosh said: “Ameresco’s integrated offering, including our technical design, demand side and energy supply risk management capabilities, is absolutely key to the services we provide for our clients. We are pleased that this report has highlighted these areas as strengths. Ameresco’s comprehensive energy services provide tremendous value for organizations and businesses.”

Susan Clarke, Verdantix Senior Analyst, said: “The Green Quadrant UK Energy Services report demonstrates the breadth of capabilities available to businesses looking for new ways in which to manage their energy supply. With organisations of all sizes recognising the importance of energy to their operations, suppliers that offer high quality services and expert advice are well placed to support customers.”
