Clean, just, and predictable energy
How do you prepare for the future of energy in a high-uncertainty world?
Today’s utility customers play an active role in their energy choices—and expect personalized communications and offers from you. We design and deliver programs that foster a managed connection between customers and their utilities—with an emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Clean energy is the way of the future. We help clients worldwide decarbonize their economies by developing smart strategies in grid edge management, distributed energy resources, renewables development, climate mitigation and 80x50 scenario planning, and natural gas as a bridge fuel.
Electrification benefits many utilities and customers alike: It grows load, attracts new customers, and reinforces the grid. All while reducing carbon emissions. We design and manage beneficial electrification programs for buildings, on- and off-road vehicles, and industry.
Demand-side management program design and implementation
Demand-side management and energy efficiency programs must evolve to keep pace with a changing world and evolving customer needs. We create and optimize utility portfolios to ensure these programs are streamlined, cost-effective, and successful.
Energy system transformation
Customer insights and incentives
If you were to increase your customer incentive payment by 20%, how much would that move the participation needle? We offer quantitative tools and applied science to help utilities understand customer behavior, improve program performance, and create new customer value opportunities.
