Energy as a Service

Organizations are facing complex challenges related to their energy infrastructure – from significant deferred maintenance backlogs, capital constraints, aggressive sustainability targets demanded by their stakeholders and a generational change in staff with experienced facilities staff retiring. All of this while navigating the “new normal” defined by the COVID global pandemic and the pressure of an increasing need for resiliency and energy security.

Energy as a Service (EaaS) can help solve for these challenges without upfront capital, while mitigating risk and addressing your energy requirements. Large energy users are experiencing a shift in procurement paradigm to a long-term partnership with an energy expert, like Ameresco, to set out on a path for turnkey energy management, conservation, upgrades, and clean generation. Ameresco’s deep bench of experts allows organizations, municipalities, K-12 districts, and campuses to focus on their core competencies and leave energy in the hands of the experts.
