Renewable energy consultancy SgurrEnergy has opened an office in San Francisco.
With many operational assets across the wind and solar industries, SgurrEnergy's presence in California will provide a hub from which to provide its optimization and repowering consultancy services.
With more than 5.8 GW, California has the second-highest installed wind capacity in the U.S. Solar power is an area of significant growth in the state, with more than 8.5 GW installed to date.
Staff numbers have more than doubled to over 200, as part of a three-year expansion plan announced by SgurrEnergy in 2012. The company's growth follows the recent expansion into Austin, Texas, in October 2014 and complements existing North American offices, located in Vancouver, British Columbia, and Portland, Maine.
