How AEI’s Renewable Energy Team Can Support You

Our Clients are leading the way in innovative alternative and renewable energy solutions to provide a cleaner future for us all. The best way to ensure a clear path forward is through innovation, cutting through red tape, and building trusted partnerships with open lines of communication. Our goal is to serve as an extension of our Client’s team, and clear communication is an integral part of that process.

AEI’s Renewable Energy Team can assist during the planning, design, permitting, development, construction, and commissioning stages of our Client’s projects. We provide a tailored approach in which we first gather and analyze data on the project’s feasibility, understand the project’s objective, identify the best approach(es), and provide our Clients with the best cost-saving, time-sensitive, and reasonable options to execute. Our proven track record will give you peace of mind and certainty of execution along every step of the development process.

How AEI is Preparing for the Future

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) forecasts enormous increases in renewable energy projects in both the coming short-term and the long-term. AEI is actively helping our Clients navigate the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), which has created provisions to support the growth and development of renewable and alternative energy projects. Our Renewable Energy Team has continued to stay informed as opportunities and technology in the industry have evolved.

AEI’s mentality is that we are energy agnostic. We believe all clean energy is viable and serves collectively to combat climate change. We support community solar initiatives as they empower our communities, create more viable options for reduced clean energy rates, and aid underserved people and places. Big changes take time, and as things shift, hybrid sites with battery power to assist wind and solar are becoming more common.

Beyond wind and solar power, AEI is also focusing on environmental cleanups. Our team is experienced in brownfield redevelopment, effectively repurposing blighted properties into greenfield sites with clean energy facilities. As land usage becomes an issue, redevelopment of existing properties is crucial to support the deployment of renewable and alternative energy.
