Harnessing your clean energy potential.

Green hydrogen tackles critical energy challenges, so promptly developing these facilities is crucial to meeting energy demands and investor returns. Energy developers and EPC contractors must team with a design consultant who is an expert in permitting, design, and construction of renewable energy projects to get projects online quickly. These projects can include any of the following in any combination: utility-scale solar, wind power, battery energy storage system, or electrical transmission line upgrades.

Fisher Associates has completed thousands of energy projects throughout the U.S. with our design team of engineers, surveyors, and environmental professionals. We are ready to take projects from conceptual design through construction support. Our areas of expertise for hydrogen facilities include:
