The growing demand for energy necessitates a rapid expansion of infrastructure for power generation and transmission, as well as for fuel production and transport facilities. Aspen helps governmental agencies in charge of siting and regulating energy infrastructure and the energy industry address immediate demands and meet future needs by combining our strong team management capabilities with expert interdisciplinary analysis of planning, environmental, engineering, and economic issues. Aspen has emerged as a leader in the energy policy and assessment of energy infrastructure projects by providing expert, solution-oriented services.
Aspen’s Energy Resource Economics group provides policy makers with the critical capabilities needed to evaluate and guide public policy decisions to meet the West’s energy challenges. Aspen brings economic and technical expertise in the areas of electric system resource planning and policy assessment, demand forecasting and energy efficiency program evaluation, hydropower relicensing evaluation, natural gas resource planning and policy assessment, and global climate change.
Aspen regularly assists federal, state, and local public agencies assess and permit energy infrastructure projects to ensure regulatory compliance. Our expertise in energy infrastructure gained over the past 25 years allows us to pass on our knowledge to government agency power purveyors and regulators, and help them navigate the ever dynamic regulatory environment efficiently and in a legally defensible manner.
