Our History

Breaking away from a large, fully-integrated utility, believing that there was a better way to accomplish change, AESI’s founder and chairman, Don Robinson, P.Eng., established AESI’s roots in 1984.

building from a solid foundation

Vision Statement: Being recognized by our clients as a preferred partner for supporting and augmenting their engineering, operations, and strategic business needs.

Mission Statement: To enhance the effectiveness of our clients’ operations and business processes through the provision of exceptional engineering, technical and management services; by employing and mentoring professional talent in an environment that fosters professional growth to meet our clients’ highest standards.

from our founders to new generations

Realizing much success in our more than 30 years, AESI has grown as a privately-owned consulting and engineering firm supporting electrical utility clients – generation, transmission, distribution, as well as independent system operators – giving us a full perspective of the challenges being faced by our clients in the changing marketplace.

Today, AESI offers a strong team with proven credentials throughout North America. Our technical knowledge, commitment to knowledge-transfer, business acumen, and dedication to our clients’ best interests are second to none. What started with a promise for better solutions has fostered a reputation dedicated to customer service and satisfaction by understanding our client’s business so well that staff members become integrated members of their team. Through the years, our services have expanded and evolved, shown by way of growth and repeat business locally and internationally.
