Through projects and partnerships with local and international developers, SEM is already hard at work in the next phase of energy development. Renewables provide a cleaner, healthier and less environmentally harmful alternative to non-renewables, and aid in the protection of our planet for future generations.
We are experts at navigating the evolving world of environmental regulations. By mapping out the processes a potential project would undergo, we can help create efficiencies in project schedule and design from an early stage.
From sensitive wildlife areas, critical species at risk habitat, and sensitive wetlands, to conflicting resource use, we identify barriers to development. Our experts can coordinate with multi-disciplinary teams to provide guidance on sources of friction for any project from an environmental lens.
Identifying vulnerable components of the environment is essential to designing strategies that will minimize effects. We are specialized at surveying habitat for many important wildlife species such as birds, bats or fish.
Once a project has been approved, SEM completes ongoing bird and bat acoustic monitoring, rare plant and lichen surveys, and more to help determine and prevent long term effects to wildlife.
Our LiDAR system allows SEM’s drone operators and mapping professionals to scan sites with accuracy, precision, and flexibility from both the air and on-foot.
LiDAR scanning allows us to produce more accurate maps, digital elevation models, high resolution point clouds, and to gather data for use in geographic information systems
