About AESC

AESC specializes in addressing today’s most demanding energy challenges. Whether we are evaluating a commercial building for efficiency retrofits or developing a new software solution for a utility, our cadre of specialists brings to each project a depth of energy engineering expertise found nowhere else.

AESC is a part of the Energia Pacifica family of companies. Energia Pacifica is a U.S.-based company that provides engineering and technological solutions that expand the adoption of renewable energy. Using a two-pronged approach, Energia Pacifica’s capabilities extend from development and design to implementation and support. Energia Pacifica companies work to create a clean, efficient and intelligent energy future for the United States.

AESC’s Approach to Energy Engineering

The opportunities within today’s energy industry are greater and more varied than ever before. Developments in renewables, energy storage and smart grid technology are transforming the utility industry. Sustainability is on everyone’s mind. Breakthroughs in energy efficiency are challenging the ways we think about consuming energy.

The potential is monumental, but the systems and solutions are complex. Because innovation does not occur in a vacuum, the AESC approach to energy engineering recognizes the need for collaboration and multiple perspectives that align the interests of the utility and consumer. Because confidence is the key to investment in energy solutions, we deliver an unquestionable level of technical skill to support informed, confident decision-making.

The Intersection of Public and Private Energy Interests

AESC’s practical experience and customer base position the firm at the intersection of public and private energy interests.

From utility to facility, AESC plans, predicts, evaluates and supports the implementation of practical energy solutions that are transforming the way we produce and consume energy.

The AESC team includes electrical, mechanical, environmental and software engineers — all with a passion for energy engineering. Our principals and program managers are utility and facility industry veterans, domain experts who understand the regulated utility environment as well as the competitive world of commercial and industrial facilities.

Management Team

The management team at AESC is dedicated to maintaining a high level of proficiency in state-of-the-art systems and a supportive, team-based work environment in a trustworthy partnership with our clients.

AESC’s Client-Centric Approach

The AESC team is proud of our ongoing commitment to a client-centric culture. A key to this approach is its focus on relationships, not transactions.

Our goals go beyond checking off a list of deliverables and protecting our budget. We trust that if we completely satisfy the client’s objective, the transactions will take care of themselves and our business will thrive.

Toward that end, our mission is to earn a long-term and trusted role on your team. We believe the only way to accomplish this is through a committed client focus, high-quality work and a flexible, creative, results-oriented approach to problem-solving.

The bottom line? It is more fun and more rewarding to work this way. That is important to our team, and it is absolutely good business.
