Alternative Energy Systems Consulting, Inc.

Technology Solutions

AESC offers technology expertise and thought leadership across energy efficiency, load flexibility, energy resiliency, and transportation electrification.

Microgrid and Virtual Power Plant (VPP) Studies

AESC helps assess, plan, and recommend technology solutions for microgrids and VPPs, allowing power supply to shift to alternate energy sources for cost savings and resiliency purposes. AESC manages the coordination of DERs in concert with microgrid energy needs.

Transportation Electrification

For more than a decade, AESC has been helping governments and utilities plan for and develop infrastructure for electric vehicles and implement EV programs. We develop EV assessments and road maps, online program portals, charging infrastructure studies, and site assessments.

Emerging Technology Studies

We execute emerging energy efficiency technology studies for all major California investor-owned utilities, including HVAC, plug controls, new refrigeration applications, lighting upgrades, pumping systems, wastewater treatment, grid-integrated efficient building (GEB) technologies, and smart meters.

Distributed Energy Resources (DERs)

We are DER system integrators, experts in interconnection and the distributed grid that enable transactive energy. We bring technology expertise with photovoltaic (PV) systems, battery storage, thermal energy storage (TES), combined heat and power (CHP), as well as the DERMs that optimize building loads, utility tariffs, and grid needs.
