Evaluation, Measurement, and Verification

What will make your clean energy program more cost-effective? Are your programs having a positive impact on your customers? Is your clean energy program supporting big-picture utility goals?

Our evaluation, measurement, and verification services address each stage of your program lifecycle: design and implementation, regulatory strategy and support, and benchmarking and best practices. With each report, we focus on delivering clear and actionable insights about your current programs and policies, so you can quickly pivot to match the rapid innovation happening in our industry.

Evaluation Design and Implementation

Did your last evaluation feel like nothing more than a financial audit? Did it give you just a snapshot view of an everchanging landscape? We specialize in agile and adaptive evaluations that provide continuous feedback, allowing for frequent “course corrections” to address your changing priorities, in addition to meeting regulatory reporting requirements. Our recommendations will help you optimize results.
