Associated’s approach is to work with owners and communities to develop sustainable solutions for the facility or community, considering environmental, social, and economic considerations. We consider renewable energy options such as hydroelectricity, hydraulic energy recovery, biofuels, cogeneration, heat recovery, geo-exchange heating & cooling, and solar energy. Our specialists can also assist you with energy efficiency studies and building energy use assessments to reduce and optimize energy consumption.
