- evaluating risk of weather and technology-driven load-shedding in competitive power markets
- developing a granular demand outlook for the US electricity sector, including end-uses by geography and over time
- supporting multiple industrial clients on energy strategy to reduce emissions increase resiliency
- sizing the US residential and commercial and industrial rooftop solar market for the unregulated business of a US utility
- helping an energy-services company conduct an economic valuation of bundled distributed energy resources by location and load shape
