Energy and Telecommunications Industry Services

  • Economic Impact Studies
    Our economists and public policy analysts can assess the impact a new power plant or facility will have on regional earnings and employment. These analyses help policymakers and business leaders understand the impact the business will have on the community.
  • Fiscal Impact Studies
    Our economists and public policy analysts can assess the impact a new facility or regulatory change will have on the tax revenue and expenditures of a government municipality. These studies allow government officials to effectively evaluate or plan for a new development or project that affects tax revenue, service fees, or the cost of providing services.
  • Regulatory Analyses
    Our consultants can assess the impact of regulatory changes, providing businesses and policymakers with the necessary information to make good regulatory decisions.
  • Tax Policy Analysis
    Small tax policy changes can mean big changes in the amount individuals or businesses owe in taxes, and tax burdens can vary by size of business or among industries. AEG has expertise in tax policy and can estimate how a tax change will impact the tax burdens borne by businesses and/or individuals.

    Our market and industry analysis specialists can assist in determining the best location for a new facility.
