This Award emphasizes the company’s continued effectiveness and efficiency in delivering solid, quality energy solutions to a broad array of customers in the energy services market while extending considerable focus to market-leading company growth.
"Ameresco’s continued market-leading success is attributed to its three core focus points which are largely unique to the company," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Devin Castleton. "Namely, its approach to energy services by offering itself as a purely independent energy services provider; its unique and effective blend of comprehensive and creative solutions applied seamlessly by a diverse, experienced, and mobile team of experts and its aggressive yet extremely calculated and potent strategy for growth."
Ameresco carries a bold reputation as North America’s largest independent, single-source provider of energy solutions with nearly $4 billion in services to date.
Its powerfully diverse service portfolio includes energy efficiency projects, infrastructure renewal, renewable energy, water conservation, facility maintenance and operation and energy supply management. These are supplemented by its core offerings in traditional energy service company (ESCO) services such as heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) upgrades, lighting retrofits, emergency power, along with many others.
Ameresco continues to boast its ability to offer the very best in accessibility and service with a regionalized organizational structure enabling it to efficiently serve its clients across North America. This contributed significantly to its recent 70 percent growth. This growth comes as a direct effect of its ability to upgrade and renew facilities while reducing operations and maintenance costs saving its clients both money and energy resources.
The company’s clients range from commercial businesses to government entities, residential, institutional and industrial customers. By helping its clients reinvest energy savings back into core business activities and increase overall profitability through both supply-side and demand-side solutions, Ameresco multiplies its value far beyond traditional energy conservation and by so doing continues to garner an increasing client base.
"Ameresco has substantially strengthened its position in the renewable energy segment by purchasing Southwest Photovoltaic Systems, Inc., a Texas-based renewable energy systems provider which has better equipped the company to implement solar, wind, and other renewable energy solutions into its clients’ infrastructure," notes Castleton. "Ameresco’s range of renewable energy products and services now extends from large scale photovoltaic and wind development to smaller specialty systems requiring experienced component selection and realistic solutions."
The company’s package of energy solutions fully demonstrates its ability to produce a set of comprehensive and creative solutions for its clients’ energy needs. Ameresco continues to utilize its unique ability to offer flexibility and quick decision making for its clients, bringing in cutting edge solutions that extend past the industry’s standards for excellence.
The Frost & Sullivan Award for Growth Strategy Leadership of the Year is presented each year to the company that has demonstrated an exceptional growth strategy within their industry. In the ESCO market, a market that has experienced solid growth and an increased awareness among end-users to become more energy efficient, growth leaders must possess a solid and proven plan to land a cut above the competition.
