Ide Energy & Strategy Services

Clients hire us to develop strategies, increase the use of clean energy and efficiency, and better understand varied interests.  We understand the unique perspective of utilities and help cities and communities develop energy and climate plans by engaging collaboratively with utilities.  We specialize in connecting people and ideas across the energy ecosystem: policy, regulators, cleantech, renewables, efficiency, demand response, green finance, advocates and legal structures.

Sustainability is a collaborative approach to create lasting economic, community and environmental solutions.  We have advised on sustainability planning for clients from small farmers to companies seeking B Corp certification to publicly-traded mining companies. We excel at advancing stakeholder groups to advise on sustainability and provide community engagement.

Board Engagement
Boards hire us to facilitate strategy discussions and to improve engagement with boards, investors, executives and other stakeholders, especially around Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) goals, strategies and communications.
