American Indian-owned energy company optimistic about 2011

Jim Williamson, CEO of New West Technologies, which was founded in 1996 to help American Indian tribes find solutions to their electrical grid challenges, is upbeat about the future of the renewable energy and energy efficiency industry. The CEO said in a recent statement that “Now, more than ever, there is a collective shift to explore alternative energy options. We need to continue to ensure such methods deliver optimal results.”

Mr. Williamson’s technical consulting company provides research and testing mostly for the federal government, and has experienced a 687% growth rate over the last three years. It even made Inc. magazine’s 500/5000 Fastest Growing Companies list this year and two years previously. New West Technologies started with an idea that if you want something done, you have to do it for yourself, and since then, has provided a comprehensive analysis of electric vehicle options (with NASA), has been able to provide energy efficiency solutions for the trucking industry, and currently provides evaluation of the environmental impact of wind, biomass, solar, and distributed generation technologies.

“One of the keys to success,” Mr. Williamson remarked, “is to be able to understand the growing need to cater to energy issues. Many companies focus on profit and now they are failing. We recognised early that we needed to be a company that provided research, testing, and applications for renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies. We understood that back when we started, and that is why our company is optimistic for another big year.”

New West Technologies is hopeful for the future, recently receiving three new contracts: one for the Housing Authority of Baltimore City for energy analysis and assessments, one for the Maryland Port Administration that will provide environmental consulting services for the Port of Baltimore, and one that will provide energy-saving technologies to Naval facilities.

While the company is an integral part of Mr. Williamson’s life, there is a direct correlation between his personal life and the success of the business. Outside of work, Mr. Williamson enjoys working on his side project, The Montana Wind House, an energy-efficient, wind-powered, and fully interactive home built for educational and demonstration purposes near the Fort Peck Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes in Fort Peck, Montana. The project provides readily available green building and renewable energy information through technology guides, live energy data, streaming video feeds, and online educational workshops.

“We want energy to work for us in a clean and responsible way, and we are excited to see what 2011 will bring,” said Mr. Williamson.

New West Technologies is an American Indian-owned small business that provides technical and management services for federal and private sector clients. It has offices in Denver, Colorado; Washington, D.C.; Landover, Maryland; and Utica, New York, with a growing staff of technical experts.
