In support of your energy efficiency goals, we can ensure compliance with complex carbon-driven and energy-related legislation, reduce energy consumption and costs and assess and implement self-supply options.

We also help clients to address key issues such as planning for increased energy demand, finding the right combination of on-site generation and energy purchasing, and evaluating energy sources and systems, including green technologies. We focus on critical concerns such as protecting and maintaining the power supply, improving energy efficiency and performing upgrades without adverse impacts on facility operations. We also support clients in planning and designing for power resilience to deal with extreme weather.

Proven impacts

WSP supports clients all around the world in improving their energy performance. In the US, we devised strategies for Pacific Gas & Electric to reduce their energy demand and improve their use of sustainable and renewable energy supplies, helping them to meet their commitment of providing more than 20% of future energy from renewable sources.

In Sweden, one of WSP’s energy experts is working with the BeBo network, an association of real estate owners, to help develop new energy-efficient products and building components and to make effective decisions on energy efficiency across their existing housing stock. This includes, among other things, heat-recovering ventilation systems, various roof and wall insulations and energy-efficient household equipment.
