Sage Renewables, an independent energy planning and project management firm, has changed its name to Sage Energy Consulting, reflecting its expanded range of services for renewable and advanced energy projects.
Led by principals Tom Williard, David Williard and Brent Johnson, Sage is based out of the San Francisco Bay Area. The firm says it has deep experience in energy master planning and project management of all market-ready renewable and advanced energy technologies: e.g., solar, battery storage, transportation fleet electrification, zero net energy, microgrids/energy resiliency, energy efficiency and operational phase asset management. Sage provides custom analyses and modeling, with a specific focus on optimizing financial and environmental returns for clients, allowing them to make informed decisions tailored to their needs.
“To proactively meet the needs of our clients, we’ve grown and expanded our service offerings and geographic reach in response to rapid changes in the global energy market,” says Williard. “Our vision is to facilitate the rapid and appropriate deployment of renewable and advanced energy technologies that enable our clients to achieve their energy, environmental and business goals. We pride ourselves on being an independent and trusted advisor, helping our clients provide lasting benefits to their communities and the environment.”
“With renewable energy quickly becoming a necessity and a cost-saving strategy, it’s imperative for Sage to stay at the forefront of the industry and remain nimble and innovative,” said Sage COO Russell Schmit. “Our projects are diversifying as new carbon goals and advanced energy technologies are adopted across the U.S., including microgrids and electric transportation fleets. A great deal has changed and expanded with alternative energy options and strategies, and we are here to help public and private organizations become leaders in the transition to clean energy.”
Sage’s recent projects include a district-wide solar implementation for the Kern High School District in Bakersfield, Calif., and a zero net energy strategy for California’s Santa Clara County.
