Energy + Ecology

As a resource industry, the energy sector is frequently involved with ecosystem issues that require the rigor of ecological science.

These environmental issues also require a viewpoint that science can be applied creatively to benefit and actually improve ecosystem services while promoting the needs of this critical industry.

AES works with gas, oil, electric, and alternative energy firms to provide positive benefits to new development projects, mitigation solutions, or restoration needs.

Our ecological research projects in the energy sector have been focused on issues ranging from soil carbon sequestration in western rangelands, to wildlife studies for wind farm siting, to power plant water cooling using wetlands for multiple benefits.

Aerial imaging and analysis, combined with advanced remote sensing technology, has informed the planning of new corridor routing, pipeline corridor management, as well as hazard tree management for power line rights-of-way.

Our range of services, customized to project needs, includes:

  • Comprehensive Wetland Services
  • Wildlife Studies
  • Wind Energy Investigations
  • Threatened + Endangered Species
  • Soil Carbon Sequestration Research
  • Ecological Restoration Construction Services
  • Comprehensive GIS, Aerial Imaging, + Remote Sensing Services

Approach

AES works with some of the largest energy firms in the world on long-term, public-private research and policy issues and on site-specific land planning and management challenges.

Our contribution of cutting-edge research is leading to discoveries that will benefit the energy industry for decades. Our latest breakthroughs in aerial imaging and remote sensing are providing new low-cost data for large-scale planning and reconnaissance. And our ecological construction services are the boots on-the-ground that make restoration plans a sustainable reality for a sustainable future.
