Ensuring Energy Security
Healthcare facilities, governments, military installations and private companies that demand 24-hour-a-day access to power for mission-critical systems are discovering that off-grid power from renewable energy sources can meet their needs when power grid interruptions from storms and natural disasters compromise energy flow.
On-site geothermal and biomass systems provide enhanced energy security and reliable power for backup heating, cooling, hot water and electrical needs. Ameresco can also identify, develop, build, operate and maintain local resources for hydroelectric and landfill-gas-to-energy systems that bring power supplies closer to the systems that need them, freeing facilities from dependence on distant power generation plants and higher levels of energy transmission risk.
As a bonus, these on-site and local renewable-energy systems will supplement existing on-grid power delivery, providing measurable savings in energy costs and reducing the impact of facilities on the environment.
