The December 2013 edition of Biomass magazine includes an article on how the geoAMPS software product altAMPS benefits companies in the biogas arena. Biomass Managing Editor Anna Simet compiled an article titled "Biogas Product Prospectus," which cites the expectation that the global biogas equipment market will boom over the next several years. The article includes information from producers and providers that she writes “are a mix of innovative equipment with relevance to one or more of each respective biogas use.” Included among companies and products serving the biogas market is geoAMPS and its altAMPS software. altAMPS is one of the suite of industry-specific software products provided by geoAMPS. altAMPS is specially designed to meet the needs of the alternative energy industry, including bioenergy. altAMPS centralizes project information in an online database where information is collaborative across the entire organization. Project data can be accessed and worked with on computers, tablets and mobile devices. “altAMPS provides end-to-end management of projects in biogas and other alternative energy projects, bringing information on planning, acquisition, construction, operations and maintenance together in one easy-to-use and secure platform,” the article states.
geoAMPS has helped Group Management Services, Inc. (GMS), the largest Professional Employer Organization (PEO) in Ohio and one of the largest employers in the state, realize dramatic savings in the cost of operating its sales division. An online sales presentation developed by geoAMPS has been implemented at GMS and is saving the company thousands of dollars annually. An article about the project and a case study of its success has been published on The Daily Energy Report website.

It was written by Dan Liggett, Communications and Public Relations Manager at geoAMPS, and Nathan Mirolo, geoAMPS Marketing and Communications Specialist.

The Alternative Energy eMagazine on altenergymag.com has published an article from geoAMPS titled “Meeting Ongoing Payment Obligations for Wind Farms.” The article, co-written by Yogesh Khandelwal President and Chief Executive Officer of geoAMPS, and Dan Liggett, Communications and Public Relations Manager, discusses how the geoAMPS software product altAMPS can help wind energy companies through a major pain point: managing ongoing payments.
WBNS-TV, the CBS network affiliate in Columbus, the capital and largest city in Ohio, recently reported on the growth of geoAMPS. 10-TV News Reporter Jennifer Jarrell visited geoAMPS, covering the story of the company’s plan to relocate soon to a much larger office to accommodate its dramatic growth. “Big business in Powell. One company’s growth spurt has it on the move,” the 10-TV News show anchor says as an introduction to Jarrell’s report.
geoAMPS' plan to move soon to a new, much larger office is a featured article on the homepage of the website altenergymag.com, which focuses on developments, products and services for the alternative energy industry. Under the title "geoAMPS moving to new, larger office," the article is included in theToday's Alternative Energy Headlines on the website's homepage for July 29, 2013.
The editors of Renewable Energy World have chosen “The Big Question: Do Domestic Content Rules Help or Hurt Renewables” as their Featured Article on the Renewable Energy World website homepage. The editors reached out to industry executives to share their thoughts and insights on their controversial subject. A response from Yogesh Khandelwal, President and Chief Executive Officer of geoAMPS, was one of only four chosen to be included in the article. In recent years, the World Trade Organization has been called upon to investigate cases of domestic content rules (DCR, also known as local content rules or LCR) in renewable energy policy. In a recent highly publicized case, the Canadian province of Ontario was accused of violating trade law by requiring renewable energy developers to buy a designated amount of locally sourced materials for projects as part of its feed-in tariff (FIT) program.
Do domestic content rules help or hurt renewables? That was “The Big Question” in the July/August 2013 edition of Renewable Energy World Magazine. The magazine asked industry executives to share their thoughts on this controversial question. A response by Yogesh Khandelwal, President of Chief Executive Officer of geoAMPS, was one of only four that the magazine editors accepted for publication. In recent years, the World Trade Organization (WTO) has been called upon to investigate cases of domestic content rules in renewable energy policy. In a recent highly publicized case, the Canadian province of Ontario was accused of violating global trade laws by requiring renewable energy developers to purchase a designated amount of locally sourced materials for projects as part of the province’s feed-in tariff (FIT) program. In December 2012, the WTO found these practices illegal and upheld that ruling on appeal. Rules similar to Ontario’s FIT program, however, have been implemented in many countries as a way to provide incentive to more development of renewable energy projects.
geoAMPS and its executives, Yogesh Khandelwal, President and Chief Executive Officer, and Leena Madan, Chief Operating Officer, are featured in the June 23, 2013, edition of The Columbus Dispatch.

Advertising billboards, for better or worse, are part of the American landscape. Hundreds of thousands of billboards can be seen from the nation’s interstates and federal highways. Some people find them informative and entertaining, while others regard them as eyesores. Starting in the 1950s, the federal government has taken action to establish controls of outdoor advertising. Those controls have made a tremendous impact on the outdoor advertising industry, and state departments of transportation that are charged with regulating outdoor advertising. Those state agencies have a challenging task of tracking and controlling billboards over thousands of highway miles on limited staff and budgets.
