Ameresco, Inc., (NYSE: AMRC), a leading cleantech integrator specializing in energy efficiency and renewable energy, today announced that it has been named a finalist in the S&P Global Platts 2022 Global Energy Awards for the Infrastructure Project of the Year and Corporate Impact, Sustained Commitment categories.
Ameresco was selected as a finalist for the Infrastructure Project of the Year award in recognition of its work at Fort Bragg, in collaboration with Duke Energy, to install the largest floating solar array in the Southeast. The solar facility is part of a $36 million design-build contract, to improve energy resilience and security, through infrastructure modernization, lighting and water upgrades, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning and boiler system improvements.
The company has also been named a finalist for the Corporate Impact, Sustained Commitment award in recognition of its efforts to support the communities that its employees reside in and projects touch. Through the end of 2021, Ameresco employees devoted a collective 2,040 hours to more than 140 non-profit organizations, and the company donated over $172,000 between employee donation matches and business donations.
“In a year of unexpected challenges, from the Russia-Ukraine war, to Europe’s energy crisis, to trade-flow changes and banner market volatility, it’s particularly inspiring to see the innovation and leadership of this year’s finalists in steering a continued course toward better ensuring the energy needs of the future,” said Sue Avinir, Senior Vice President of Conferences & Advisory Solutions, S&P Global Commodity Insights. “We’re proud to honor this year’s finalists and celebrate their efforts.”
The theme of this year’s Global Energy Awards is “Committed.Connected.Charged.” and reflects how energy industry leaders are working towards the global energy transition, as well as supporting their local communities.
“It is a great honor to be named a finalist in two categories at the 2022 S&P Global Platts Global Energy Awards,” said George Sakellaris, President and CEO, Ameresco. “We are proud to have been involved in developing such an innovative project at Fort Bragg, and we are committed to staying true to our mission of doing well by doing good.”
