 How We Help You Deliver Utility Infrastructure Projects

​As a trusted utility infrastructure partner, we work with clients to bring cost and performance certainty to each one of our projects in a number of ways. With over 125 years of experience, we discerningly allocate technical and commercial risk, navigate unique regulatory and compliance processes, and apply a wealth of knowledge, making us an operational and environmental leader.

With a strong track record in project investment, we also bring tailored solutions to the table for capital investment, as well as providing life cycle turnkey project solutions. Through design-build-operate-maintain (DBOM) and design-build-finance-operate (DBFO) methods, we deliver successful utility infrastructure projects to clients in Canada and the United States. Our projects are completed on-time, on-budget, in a safe and reliable manner.

A variety of asset investment options exist to ensure fiscal discipline and performance accountability.

Infrastructure project delivery options and risk transfer

As an investor in utility infrastructure assets, we provide a number of project delivery and financing options to fit your needs. These include:

  • Build-Own-Operate-Transfer
  • Design-Build-Finance-Operate
  • Take or Pay
  • Capital Leases
  • Public-Private Partnerships
  • Regulated Investor-Owned Utilities

Early in the development stage, an integrated team works together to optimize the project outcomes. We create significant value for clients by allocating risk to the party best able to manage the risk. We work with our clients to determine which risks would be assigned to EPCOR, retained by the client, or shared by the client and EPCOR jointly. Learn how we can help municipalities or industries.


Asset acquisition

Additionally, we can offer public and private utilities the unique opportunity to monetize their assets. We can structure acquisitions to maximize return on investment and have significant industry experience in executing transactions in both regulated and non-regulated environments. Contact us to learn more or discuss opportunities.
