From traditional oil and gas to generation-scale solar farms and multi-state transmission lines, EMPSi is a leader in energy-focused planning and permitting

Planning for energy-related projects of any scale grows harder by the day and takes an extraordinary level of expertise to carry from conception, through the web of competing interests and government permitting, to final construction and operation. We know this regulatory geography and have the relationships, public outreach capabilities, staff, and experience to successfully manage the most contentious and challenging energy projects.
