As markets and market risks evolve along with decarbonization of the energy sector, the investment decisions required to develop and update electrical generation and transmission assets for the long term must be grounded in broad market knowledge and deep asset data.

A second opinion equips asset owners and developers with the strategies and analysis to move forward with confidence. Our resource planning consultants apply their broad market knowledge to equip decision-makers with strategies and understanding for critical long-range planning.

Our focus is on supporting business decisions with unbiased, informed strategies.
