Core States Group New Dedicated Energy Division

Core States Group has formed a new division, Core States Energy, to specifically address the needs of our energy and sustainability clients from design phase through construction. The new division will provide turn-key engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services for zero emission vehicle and energy generation systems.
“Our team is incredibly excited about our new division,” says Brian Baird, Director of Energy and Sustainability. “We know already that our EPC delivery method best serves our energy customers by delivering a continuous customer experience while driving down the cost of deployment.”
Core States Energy will focus on applying their energy services to public, commercial, and industrial projects in North America while moving clients and agencies toward their sustainability and resiliency goals.
As leading brands and communities explore energy options for their facilities, sites, and business models, Core States’ in-house specialists for power and zero emission vehicle projects will provide a seamless design and engineering partner across North America.
The full spectrum of Core States Energy’s solutions includes delivering due diligence, engineering, permitting, procurement and construction and management services for hundreds of zero emission vehicle (ZEV) Infrastructure and utility and distributed generation (DG) systems. Technologies include battery storage, fuel cells, solar, combined heat and power, electric vehicle charging, NG generators, hydrogen fueling, and other cutting edge distributed energy and ZEV technologies.
“We pride ourselves staying on the frontier of new ZEV and DG technologies” said Baird. “The future is electric. The future is distributed. There’s a multitude of new to market technologies that will change the way we produce and use electricity. From ultra-high fast DC chargers for electric vehicles, to high efficiency onsite generators we excel at solving our customers challenges in deploying their technologies at scale.”
While Core States Energy is already working in a number of markets, Baird is eager to see how the new division can expand its services even further. "It is our job to guide and educate clients on ways they can not just achieve their goals but far exceed them," Baird says.
