Accurate and relevant energy information is the foundation of any energy efficiency, renewable energy or integrated energy management plan. When robust energy analytics are available, public and private enterprises can make decisions that deliver meaningful savings and environmental benefits.
Ameresco offers a complete suite of asset and energy information tools that go beyond the standard energy data to provide continual, real-time information about energy use that organizations can use to negotiate energy contracts, maintain carbon compliance and certifications or isolate poorly performing energy systems that can deliver measurable return on investment with energy upgrades.

ASG provides asset management solutions to clients in both the public and private sectors, including school boards, post-secondary schools, municipalities, public housing, healthcare, hospitality, property management, and commercial/retail.
