Over the years, numerous clients have trusted our firm for interventions in the Energy and Environment Industry

The environment and energy have become global issues in efforts to protect our planet and ensure the sustainability of our resources. This has led to a multitude of proposals for collective and targeted initiatives, which have in turn created a truly cutting-edge industry that develops solutions and practices to conserve resources and minimize the impact of companies and communities on our environment.

The consultants at Zins Beauchesne and Associates are regularly involved in environment and energy sector projects, particularly in the fields of energy efficiency, home automation, building automation, and residual material management and reclamation. In these projects, they provide advice to companies and industrial clusters with the goal of improving their competitiveness in their respective markets or assisting them in marketing industry solutions and services.

These wide-ranging projects have enabled Zins Beauchesne and Associates to develop advanced expertise in various alternative energy industries as well as the electricity and fossil fuel industries (natural gas, oil): solar energy, wind energy, biomass energy, geothermal energy and bioenergy.

Our firm is regularly hired by companies, public organizations, research and development (R&D) centres and industrial clusters to perform the following:
