ENERGY

The world is transitioning from a fossil based energy system, to clean renewable distributed energy. Momentum for this transition is building through government incentives, recognition of human involvement in climate change, and geopolitical complexities of foreign energy sources. Barnett Environmental has the regulatory experience to navigate complexities of evolving energy development, which includes wind, solar, and numerous emerging waste to energy modalities. Ancillary to these foci, Barnett Environmental is also able to offer specific services related to all aspects of liquid and solid waste treatment and disposal.
