Industry Expertise
Energy and Environment

The energy and environment industries face many challenges, but offer exceptional new opportunities. Developing technologies, changing customer preferences, major regulatory adjustments, shifting economic considerations… all point to a disruptive short and long-term future as U.S. and global markets look to re-balance. AEG’s deep understanding and experience in this arena can help guide effective decision-making so you can stay a step ahead of potentially risky developments.

Energy and Environment Industry Services

At AEG, we provide high quality analysis coupled with clear, concise communication of impacts from economic and demographic trends, regulations, laws, investments, and facilities. Our work enhances that of clients engaged in energy and environmental issues and activities. We assist companies proposing a development, interest groups, business owners, and lawmakers who require timely analysis of regulations, laws, or projects. Our knowledge of the myriad issues surrounding the intersection between energy and environment (e.g., the electric vehicle/renewables transition) is particularly salient today, as government and industry set and attempt to meet highly ambitious targets that will challenge all involved.

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.

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.

Our consultants can assess the impact of regulatory changes, providing businesses and policymakers with the necessary information to make good regulatory decisions.

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.

These assessments provide a close look at the current and projected demographic and socio-economic characteristics of any geographic area. Our work includes Brownfield analyses as well as other locations where a business or project in energy and telecommunications may be affected. The focus of our analysis can be tailored to fit specific needs, whether it be identifying growth areas or filling regulatory requirements.
These assessments allow industry groups, trade associations, and governments to better understand their industry’s size, strengths, and trends over time.  We can determine industry employment, average wages, growth and contraction trends, strengths and weaknesses, and estimate economic and fiscal impacts.
These studies evaluate the health or environmental impacts of a facility, installation, or activity  on minority and low-income populations.
Our energy and environmental experts provide knowledgeable, respected testimony and detailed reports for use in state and federal courts, regulatory proceedings, state legislative hearings, local zoning boards, the International Court of Claims, arbitration panels, and other venues.

Our market snapshot reports offer a concise analysis of your business or organization’s trade area demographics. For more information please visit our Market Snapshots Reports webpage.

AEG consultants understand the energy, telecommunications, sci-tech, and alternative fuels industries, along with the challenges that arise from balancing the needs of commerce with good environmental stewardship. We offer a wide array of services from site selection to impact and feasibility studies. Our clients have included LS Power, Wolverine Power Cooperative, ITC Holdings Corp., SBC Communications, and Small Business Association of Michigan, among many others.
