Today’s rapidly evolving technology developments and changing energy industry market dynamics requires insightful and data driven research to stay at the leading edge of energy resource acquisition and management opportunities.
Our firm takes pride in working with clients to ensure they are at the leading edge of developments in the clean energy marketplace, and evolving customer preferences and attitudes toward energy use and investment in new energy technologies. With the aid of this research, we are helping our utility clients provide a new generation of energy services to their customers that are customized to their unique needs and energy use profiles, while deploying technologies that have higher resource value to the grid. We are also coupling customer research with in-field pilot demonstration projects employing new grid-interactive technologies, energy storage systems, and electrification strategies to understand how these applications can best be integrated into grid operations.
