Geosyntec Consultants Expands Environmental Management and Sustainability Services with Green Harbor Energy
ATLANTA, July 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- With the addition of a group of leading practitioners, Geosyntec today expands our environmental management and sustainability services to include consulting, engineering, and marketing services so that clients can monetize their energy efficiency savings, renewable energy production, and renewable fuel production through environmental credit markets. These services are now offered through Green Harbor Energy, a division of Geosyntec Consultants.
Green Harbor Energy (GHE), led by Managing Director Paul MacGregor, Ph.D., is a full service provider with experience in energy efficiency project development, such as combined heat and power (CHP) systems and energy conservation measures, utility quality metering systems, and energy management systems. With this unique experience, we have pioneered the market for credits from energy efficiency savings, known as Energy Efficiency Certificates (EECs). We have also helped dozens of solar photovoltaic facilities in multiple states qualify for the creation of Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECs). Similarly, GHE principals have worked with numerous producers of renewable fuels in the monetization of Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs).
"With more experience, technical proficiency, market knowledge, sales relationships, and regulatory expertise than any other firm, we can bring an unparalleled level of value and service to our clients. We created and sold the first EECs in every state with an active tradable market for credits, specifically: Massachusetts, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Illinois, giving us unmatched insight into the market to help our clients maximize the value of their environmental energy credits," Dr. MacGregor said.
GHE works with clients to: define and assess efficiency and renewable project opportunities; qualify efficiency and renewable projects for the production of credits; measure, verify, and certify energy savings and renewable production; aggregate, market, and sell certified credits in state and national markets; provide financial services in the contracting of credit sales; and manage and deliver credits through exchanges and national markets. GHE clients include sustainability, facility, and energy managers, including those in the commercial, industrial, and institutional sectors as well as owners of renewable energy projects.
"The addition of Green Harbor Energy brings an exciting new business area to the firm while at the same time creating significant synergies and new opportunities with our existing environmental management business line," said Rudy Bonaparte, Ph.D., P.E., CEO and President of Geosyntec Consultants.
