Partnering With Power for a Better World
Our world runs on power … transforming quality of life and powering progress across the globe. We help our clients bring this essential resource to every region of the world – safely and responsibly.
We’re at the forefront of the power industry’s efforts to maximize renewable energy and minimize environmental footprints.
From wind farms in Australia and Peru to solar plants in Malaysia and Italy. From power generation on waste landfills on all six continents to hydroelectric production in North America and Africa.
Our full-cycle solutions in renewables and conventional power span conception to completion, permitting to decommissioning for renewable resource management, nuclear waste management services, coal ash disposal and mitigation services as well as transmission line routing for over hundreds of kilometers.
“Our global engineering and environmental teams in generation and transmission, renewables and remediation allow us to support you wherever you are.”- Anthony Ciccone, Vice President, Infrastructure & Power, North America
We serve the power industry through our multidisciplinary expertise in geotechnical design, engineering, planning, permitting, risk management, remediation and regulatory affairs.
We excel at the environmental studies, risk assessment and stakeholder engagement required to gain approvals for sensitive power projects. Such as permitting a 2,100-kilometer transmission line through indigenous territory in Canada or construction of tailings dams for coal ash management.
To enhance renewables, our technical and engineering specialists are advancing innovative storage solutions for wind and solar power and the design of pumped hydro storage to transform abandoned mining facilities into pumped storage capacity.
And we’ve long been a leader in nuclear waste management and repository services for the Nuclear Waste Management Organization in Canada and across Europe.
We want to help you secure your power supplies, reduce risk and improve environmental and social performance.

Nearly 20 years ago, a bestselling book titled, “The World is Flat” laid out a compelling vision of a world that would work seamlessly across continents and time zones. Many of the book’s optimistic ideas have not yet come to pass, but over the past decade, Golder has been strategically implementing global delivery of one of the company’s core services:...
Hydrology and water resource planning are important components in most, if not all, environmental projects. This is especially true in the mining sector, where huge pits, reservoirs, and tailings storage facilities (TSFs) are commonplace.
Big changes are underway in how major infrastructure projects such as electricity supply, dams, pipelines and ports get funded. Financing decisions used to focus on a project’s ability to deliver good financial results. But now, during what many are calling the “green recovery,” investors, private equity managers, bankers and governments who finance major projects are increasingly looking through the lens...
Every power plant has an expiration date – a point at which it will no longer be economical nor safe to operate. The decommissioning of coal-fired power plants is something that Australia has had little experience with to date – but a large proportion of the country’s thermal generation fleet is approaching end of life, with many power stations set...
