Nearly every medium to large-sized company, as well as government and academic institutions are thinking about or acting on a Clean Energy strategy. The drivers for this are manifold, including reducing energy costs, consumption and one’s “carbon footprint,” improving profit margins and brand image, securing tax breaks, and as a hedge against energy and market volatility.
Examples of these projects can include installing solar panels on a facility roof, reengineering a business process to take advantage of the latest clean technologies, entering new growth segments of clean energy industry, pursuing energy efficiency investments, to new arrangements for waste management or energy procurement and converting standard technologies in existing product lines to clean technologies.
