ICF, EEA Combine Energy Consulting Operations

Fairfax, VA-based consulting firm ICF International has acquired Energy and Environmental Analysis Inc. (EEA) of Arlington, VA, to bolster its energy market, energy technology and environmental advisory services.

"The combination of the modeling frameworks of ICF and EEA in the electricity and gas sectors respectively will create a unique analytical platform for integrated energy analyses," said ICF CEO Sudhakar Kesava. "This is particularly important with the increased use of natural gas and LNG as fuels to generate electric power. In addition, this framework will allow sophisticated analyses of the impacts of evolving greenhouse gas regulations at the state, provincial, and federal levels in North America."

The 27-person EEA consulting team specializes in energy market analyses, modeling, energy technology, environmental advisory services and automotive technology analysis.

"ICF's national and international geographic presence will provide wider outlets for EEA's well-established products and services, providing new growth opportunities for both companies," said EEA President Joel Bluestein. "In addition, the combined expertise and analytical tools of the two firms will facilitate the development of new products and services to meet the evolving needs of our existing and future clients." Bluestein and the other current EEA directors will continue to manage the EEA business within ICF.
