Affiliated Engineers’ Stanford Energy Systems Innovations project includes a 100 MVA, N+1, 60kV-12.47kV substation to allow flexible management of Stanford’s energy supply platform. Transforming the university energy supply from a 100% fossil-fuel-based combined heat and power plant to grid-source electricity, the project is reducing Stanford’s GHG emissions by 68% and water use by 18%.

Top 40 Electrical Design Firms 2017

The 2017 Top 40 Electrical Design Firms list

The firms on this year’s Top 40 Electrical Design Firms list appear to have enjoyed another banner year in 2015, boosted by a largely favorable, if still uncertain, macroeconomic climate. Sales for the industry’s leaders — electrical design firms that make up the 2016 EC&M Top 40 List ranked by electrical revenue — surged nearly 11% last year to $1.858 billion. In moving up from the $1.68 billion reported by the firms on the 2015 Top 40 list, the leading designers’ top line eclipsed the $1.808 billion reported by the 2014 EC&M Top 40, and put more distance between the $1.348 billion logged by the 2013 leaders.
