Decarbonization and Renewable Energy

Reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is central to mitigating climate change. Fuss & O’Neill helps clients achieve organizational and community decarbonization goals while increasing reliability and reducing costs. As part of these efforts, we develop renewable sources of energy (e.g., solar, geothermal) and alternative designs (e.g., microgrid systems) and support the transition to electrification of building and fleet operations.

Fuss & O’Neill helps clients set science-based targets and then develop action plans to reach those emission reductions. Our multidisciplinary team identifies ways to reduce and replace GHGs to meet sustainability and decarbonization goals, as well as permitting and regulatory requirements, including the phase-out of hydrofluorocarbons (HCFCs) and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs).

We help clients implement alternative and renewable energy opportunities, as these are projects that offer multiple benefits in addition to reducing GHGs: they provide a more resilient power grid, are viable sources of backup power, and they offer financial benefits in the form of reduced energy costs. When considering alternative or renewable energy sources, our team factors in the project size and scale, power demands, potential power purchase agreements (PPAs), and overall cost and complexity. The result provides the client with a right-sized solution that addresses energy, environmental, and cost goals.
