Our analytical and advisory services are second to none.

Our clients play a critical role in accelerating the clean energy transition. We support them in three ways: by Quantifying Opportunities, Designing Strategies, and Evaluating Performance. Throughout, we provide insights and advice to support effective decision-making. Our team brings hundreds of years of combined experience in energy efficiency and clean energy. We believe deeply that getting it right matters – for our clients, our communities, and our shared planet.

We help our clients assess the potential for adoption of energy efficiency, renewable energy and clean mobility solutions. We do this holistically – simultaneously integrating all efficiency measures or clean energy solutions across large markets – or individually, for a given technology, market segment, program strategy, or asset portfolio.

Whatever the breadth of solutions you are interested in, we can quantify the technical, economic and market opportunity it represents; assess its costs, benefits and risks; and help you make decisions with confidence.

We help our clients design market, policy or regulatory strategies that achieve real-world results. They are effective because they are rooted in an understanding of real-world market dynamics, because they account for lessons learned elsewhere (often the hard way), because they are adjusted to local contexts, characteristics and market intelligence, and because they are built on a deep foundation of experience and insight.

Whether it’s designing specific policies, comprehensive plans, incentive programs, financing strategies, laws and regulations or other tools in the toolbox, we help ensure that your strategy is effective, and that your goals can actually be achieved.

We help our clients take the pulse of their programs and strategies.

Most of all, we know that evaluation can be useful if built, first and foremost, to help do better. That means taking a constructive approach, delivering results quickly, and focusing on opportunities for continuous improvement. Whether it’s to assess impacts or identify ways to improve performance, we can help.
