co-meeting1The ESS team of scientists, engineers, and regulatory specialists provides a comprehensive range of services related to energy generation and transmission, coastal engineering and marine sciences, water resources and stormwater, natural resources and ecology, and environmental compliance and remediation. The integration of a wide array of technical disciplines within a single firm makes ESS a convenient "one-stop shopping" resource for both our core services and added value specialties. We also offer environmental monitoring, compliance and inspection services during construction, and operation and maintenance of facilities to provide full project life cycle services.

A Primary Focus in Energy

ESS has led the project planning, licensing, and monitoring efforts for more than 114,000 MW of energy generation, 1,200 miles of overland and submarine electric transmission, and 4,000 MW of renewable energy, including more than 450 MW of offshore wind power. ESS energy projects have also included natural gas pipelines and storage facilities, biomass-based generation, and support for regional and national energy policy development.

Coastal & Offshore Projects are Our Specialty

Conducting resource studies and evaluating projects in coastal and ocean environments require a combination of science and engineering disciplines. ESS has aquatic and marine ecologists, coastal engineers, coastal geologists, and water quality experts who regularly implement field surveys, conduct protected species and habitat assessments, and prepare environmental impact documents and permit applications for these projects. We also evaluate dredging impacts, perform coastal processes assessments, identify flood and coastal hazards, and develop coastal engineering designs.

Commitment to Client Service & Technical Excellence

ESS delivers technically sound, timely, and cost-effective environmental consulting and engineering solutions to meet all of our client’s needs - large and small. We specialize in assembling multi-disciplinary teams for large, complex projects including energy and transmission facilities, environmental cleanup and brownfields, ecosystem restoration, waterfront improvements, and commercial and industrial facility expansion. As a high performance corporate culture, we seek to consistently meet or exceed client expectations, and are proud of the close relationships we have built with clients, professional associates, and the regulatory community over our last 15 years of business.
