EMCOR Group Inc., Norwalk, Conn., has begun work on a number of new energy-related projects for utilities, companies and organizations in the U.S., U.K. and Canada.
Among EMCOR's new projects is assisting the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA), Long Island, N.Y., in the evaluation, development and field management of renewable energy generation projects. Under the three-year agreement, EMCOR will provide feasibility and implementation assistance for photovoltaics, wind energy and other developmental renewable power production applications that are driven by wave and tidal power.
In addition, the company was selected by Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) of Northern California to perform field inspections and verifications of on-site power generation projects in support of the state's Self Generation Incentive Program. This three-year contract includes inspections and verifications of technologies such as photovoltaics, fuel cells, wind, micro-turbines and more conventional cogeneration systems, the company says.
