Seeking the best energy solution for your public agency, but not sure what makes sense or who can be trusted in such a rapidly changing world?
With your new project, you have a lot on the line. Let us take the worry away by creating a customized strategy that fits your needs perfectly.
Whether it's your first project or your tenth, we will ensure you make the most transparent and widely supported project decisions possible.
For over 20 years and on 4 continents, our principals have helped leaders of public agencies launch energy- and money-saving break-through projects, programs, and policies.
As neutral, third-party coaches and trusted advisors we are experts at strategic execution in energy project development. We have seen it all: both what works, as well as what most certainly does not. We use scientifically-validated methods to work hand-in-hand with you to clearly understand your unique personal and organizational drivers, goals, and needs.
We are not in the business of selling you any particular cleantech product or service. All we want is what is best for you and your community.
By establishing a benchmark of where you are now; crafting a compelling vision for the future; and clarifying near-term goals and tactics, we will apply systems thinking to solve historically intractable problems. If you currently feel stuck, we will get you moving forward!
GRANTS & INCENTIVES
As an organization subject to tremendous public scrutiny, you need to make sure you are reducing your organizational costs to the greatest extent possible. Grants, rebates, and other incentives can bring down your overall project cost by up to 80%.
We will work with you to unearth and assess funding opportunities; prioritize projects; develop detailed budgets and scopes of work; secure valued letters of support; and conduct unbiased, preflight scoring to ensure you are precisely meeting funder objectives. Our grant proposals have a reputation for being exceedingly kickass. Don't ever leave money on the table!
Did you know that a competitive and well-managed bidding process can net you cost reductions of up to 25% or more? From traditional RFPs to online reverse auctions (our tool of choice!), we have you covered. We will make sure that your procurement efforts are comprehensive and take into account accurate and comparable lifecycle costs.
The new project you are actively considering might be a poor fit for the vendors and contractors that you've worked with previously. Let us do a thorough background check / due diligence to mitigate your latent risk as you seek to forge new relationships and implement new technologies that lie outside of your traditional comfort zone. The public landscape is riddled with failed projects that have burdened communities for years on end. Don't let this be a part of your legacy.
COST / BENEFIT ANALYSIS
Did you know that according to research performed by the Project Management Institute (PMI), just 42% of organizations report having a significant alignment of projects to organizational strategy? This disconnect is a major contributor to projects that either ultimately fail, or significantly fail to meet stated goals and objectives.
We use a field- and stress-tested process to ensure key project and organizational alignment; overcome hidden biases that can torpedo projects; uncover little-understood payoffs and costs, and; make the case for broad organizational and community support.
If you aren't currently developing a cost/benefit analysis (also known as business case analysis or BCA), for every project you seriously consider, we should most definitely be talking!
