Capabilities
Project Development
McGeown Associates applies expertise and business acumen to finding, evaluating, and developing projects with great returns for our clients.  We have a particular specialization in sustainable development, blending renewable power with conventional resources, smart grids, and energy storage.  Working with the U.S. Army we have developed expertise in power plant development on government land, leveraging innovative financing and government authorities to make land available for development.  Our support for clean energy financing has helped governments create innovative programs to improve energy efficiency in buildings and increase use of renewable energy.  We have been instrumental in the development of Utility and Energy Savings Performance Contracts to improve infrastructure and reduce energy costs.

We are particularly proud of our efforts in the Caribbean that are encouraging new business models for utilities to ensure secure access to reliable sources of clean energy that are affordable for all citizens.  This expands the traditional utility role into helping customers enhance quality of life through electricity.
