WHO WE ARE
Energy Experts International (EEI) is an international management consulting firm, specializing in energy supply, delivery, and utilization systems. Established in 1998, we serve a diverse client base across the United States, as well as international clients. EEI is a multi-faceted firm, bringing a full range of engineering, management consulting, and field augmentation services to meet the needs of the energy industry.
Our corporate headquarters is located in the United States, in Redwood City, California, just south of the San Francisco International Airport. Our Regional Offices are located in Washington D.C., Chicago and San Francisco, with our Europe office strategically located in Brussels, Belgium, the heart of the European Union’s governing body.
We are singularly focused on and committed to providing premier consulting and technical services support to energy companies, organizations, and end-users. We provide expertise in three energy sectors:
- Natural Gas
- Electric Power
- Oil (crude and refined liquids)
Understanding the entire energy “food chain” enables us to provide a comprehensive consultation on a variety of topics that span issues from utility operations management, strategic market development, and common regulatory issues, to demand-side management for small businesses. We make it our business to know everything there is about energy.
Helping our clients in dealing with rising energy costs and hedging risks are a very important part of our services. We are also at the forefront of clean energy solutions and promote the utilization of environmentally-sound green resources.
Energy Experts International’s single focus is to deliver a premier and discriminating service to its clients by providing industry subject matter experts that are knowledgeable and understand how to provide the best solutions for its clients.
Commitment to Our Clients
Our experience and depth of energy expertise gives us a significant advantage over general management consulting firms.
