Today's energy markets reward those who can use energy efficiently, are responsive to price signals, manage their exposure to market volatility, aggressively control energy supply contracts, and exploit onsite opportunities to generate their own power.

Getting the most from your energy investment requires an integrated approach, understanding and managing both your energy usage as well as energy supply options. CH2M HILL works with clients to integrate demand-side energy efficiency and load management opportunities with supply-side opportunities, including forward market procurement and onsite generation, to develop a total energy solution.

You benefit from our full-service expertise in the latest energy technologies, industrial and manufacturing processes, building systems, power systems engineering, environmental permitting, risk management, and market contracting strategies.

CH2M HILL's energy and utility systems and consulting and engineering services combine our technical expertise with an in-depth understanding of the changing energy and utility marketplace to deliver integrated and optimized total energy solutions to our clients.

Our integrated approach differentiates CH2M HILL from other energy companies and utility providers. Our many satisfied clients recognize us as a one-stop company whose services encompass all phases of project development and delivery, from strategic planning through design, construction, operations, and maintenance.

CH2M HILL can deliver the projects required to execute your total energy solution.

Carbon Management

The Kyoto Protocol carbon emissions restrictions are now in force in Europe, Japan, and Canada, affecting any company with facilities or operations in these areas. As carbon emissions credit markets gain liquidity, project-based emissions reductions can create assets that can be traded on international markets.

Our project-based emissions reductions approach provides verifiable carbon credits. CH2M HILL identifies and implements projects that reduce our clients' carbon emissions, generating carbon emission reduction credits.

Energy Management—Demand Side

Demand-side energy management begins with a comprehensive understanding of your energy needs. We provide facility energy audits that identify opportunities for building envelope energy conservation, equipment optimization, and economic analysis. We also provide evaluation and implementation of energy information management systems for real-time energy data collection and analysis, including Web-based energy management system tools. Demand-side management services include implementation of load controls including energy management control systems (EMCS) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems. We also provide expertise in energy savings performance contracts (ESPC) and utility energy service contracts (UESC) for facility improvements.

Energy Management—Supply Side

Our consulting and engineering services for supply-side energy management combine our technical expertise with in-depth understanding of the changing energy and utility marketplace to deliver optimized energy solutions to our clients. We help clients effectively manage commodity supply through competitive procurement, contract preparation negotiations, risk management and price hedging, and load aggregation. We bring expertise in the latest energy technologies, power systems engineering, energy and utility market trends, regulation and deregulation, and environmental permitting. In addition to EPC delivery of onsite power generation—including distributed generation, cogeneration, central utility plants, and renewable energy technologies—we provide evaluation of alternatives to self-ownership of utility infrastructure.
