Custom Research, Advisory, and Consulting

Clean Edge indexes and data-driven advisory services help our government, nonprofit, and corporate clients uncover and capitalize on clean-energy economy opportunities. Our expertise includes custom research, reports, indexes, analysis, market roadmaps, and business partner introductions.

Custom research projects look deeply into specific sectors, regions, companies, consumer attitudes, and trends. Our U.S. Clean Tech Leadership Index (State & Metro), stock indexes, global Clean Energy Trends tracking, clean-energy consumer surveys, and utility benchmarking work provide an excellent baseline for custom assignments.
