Our Focus Areas
We focus on clean energy transitions in emerging markets that will yield economic growth, a sustainable secure energy supply, and equitable treatment of all.
Transitioning markets present a key opportunity to develop a “new model” for energy-economic systems to replace long-standing and outdated infrastructures.
Working closely with developing economies is critical for U.S. energy and technology influence globally. Working together, we can address global issues that influence clean energy transitions.
New Thinking Revolves Around a Place-Based Approach
Preparing for a Well-Informed Transition
Develop a Framework for Analyses
The EMA technology options assessment is based on broad community need and desire (place-based). It is used to develop systems costs comparisons (fairly “standard” economic analyses).
It also includes monetization, where practical, attributes of importance and/or otherwise prioritized social, economic, environmental and other attributes.
Begin a Library of Profile Markets
A library of profile markets will build a standard set of characteristics used to identify markets with common attributes. Attributes of importance or “profiles” can then be used interchangeably as reference points to address market similarities.
Use the EMA Library to Shape Engagement
The EMA initiative library will help shape engagement, speed consideration of options, and shape policy. It will act as a valuable tool and repository as we navigate the path toward a clean energy transition.
Our Insights & Differentiators
Finding the Right Energy Fit
Our focus on finding the right energy source fit for each community and market takes understanding that goes beyond dollars and cents.
The EMA Initiative frames questioning and analyses about options that are culturally and regionally appropriate and what is technically possible.
Sustainability and Value
Our recommendations MUST provide a sustainable, regionally equitable and high-value solution.
Embracing the Best Path
We embrace what might be, not what is. We focus on removing short-term, least-cost alternatives that continue producing the weakest links.
