ICF assists EPA on clean energy and climate change policies

ICF International will assist the Environmental Protection Agency in developing clean energy and climate change policies under a five-year contract that has a ceiling of $11.3 million.

The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract from EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation calls for ICF subsidiary ICF Inc. to support agency efforts to help state and local governments develop and implement clean energy and climate change policies.

ICF will support these agency activities by providing direct technical assistance to EPA and state and local governments, and conducting analyses, studies and evaluations of clean energy technologies on air quality, climate change and human health.

The contractor also will help develop guidance and tools based on the outcome of those investigations and provide meeting, workshop, and other communications support.

ICF will draw on its experience gained from working directly for a variety of state and local governments on climate change and clean energy issues, ICF officials said. The company also has provided technical assistance to the three U.S. regional climate initiatives: the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, the Western Climate Initiative and the Midwestern Greenhouse Gas Reduction Accord.

Major changes in the climate policy landscape are likely over the next five years, said Anne Choate, ICF vice president and program manager. “Over 30 states have already developed climate action plans, with more under way. Not surprisingly, clean energy strategies form the core of all of these plans.”

ICF International, of Fairfax, Va., ranks No. 93 on Washington Technology’s 2008 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
