New Village Consulting (NVC) has been providing scale up services for Environmental Communities for almost 20 years. NVC has aided in the implementation of a number of Green Communities with the two largest being, Aldea de Santa Fe and Oshara Village of Santa Fe, New Mexico. As the real estate market works it’s way through a fundamental oversupply, NVC is turning it’s attention to the scale up of Green Energy with the creation of GES Services.

Over the last 3 years with support from the Department of Energy, Department of Agriculture and the Department of Defense, funding has been provided to private companies and universities to identify or create microbes that can convert a wide array of waste materials into feedstock for the creation of liquid transportation fuels and bio chemicals. This nation is now ready to begin commercialization of biofuel facilities to produce drop-in fuels and blending stock to reduce our dependence on Middle East oil while creating jobs at home and reducing our carbon footprint.

In the most recent edition of Biofuels Digest it was announced that in Washington, President Obama launched the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership with the goal of building 600 advanced biofuels plants in the next 11 years to meet the 2022 Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS).

With a specialty in overcoming local objections, gaining governmental approvals and permits, producing construction documents and managing that construction, GES Services is prepared to aid in the scale up of any biotechnology. As we did in large-scale environmental real estate development, we can help energy companies with:

Site Selection and Acquisition
Facility Planning and Management
Preparation of Construction Documents
Construction Oversight
Permitting and Entitlements
Water Right Acquisitions
Green Public Relations
Governmental Relations
Workforce Training

We are pleased to welcome Bob Gorlow as Team Leader for GES Services.
