Who We Are

The ECG Group is the technical owner’s representative school districts trust to seamlessly drive the EPC process.

We act as your district’s advocate, collaborating with—and proactively managing—the energy services company (ESCO) so you can be confident your energy-saving initiatives result in capital improvements and a world-class learning environment.

Recognized as much for our unparalleled knowledge and experience as we are for the passion for education that we share with school districts, at ECG we ensure that every EPC is environmentally responsible, fiscally sound, and educationally enriching.

No firm possesses our in-depth knowledge, proven track record—or client-focused commitment: ECG has successfully worked as the technical owner’s representative on more than 100 energy projects that have produced over $1 billion in energy-saving improvements. The same team that leads our firm leads every EPC engagement, bringing a level of expertise and personable, accessible service that is unmatched.


GEORGE R. LAWRENCE (1949–2016)

The ECG Group was founded in 1998 by George R. Lawrence (1949–2016). George reinvented the way energy performance contracts are procured by developing ECG’s energy performance engineering (EPE) technical owner’s representation services. Under his guidance, ECG has provided EPE services for over $1 billion in energy efficient construction. This work has had an immeasurable, lasting positive environmental and financial impact on educational and municipal communities throughout New York, Pennsylvania and Connecticut.

George’s nurturing values and innovative teachings will continue to be at the heart of everything we do at ECG—so that we may continue the legacy of our beloved founder, mentor, and friend.
