POLICY & REGULATORY ANALYSIS
As governments strengthen environmental policies, set climate goals, and fund developments in clean energy and technology, organizations that stay abreast of new changes will have the most successful impact and growth. But policies vary widely across the country, reflecting different state or regional priorities, and that's where we come in. Diane Cherry Consulting serves as your guide through the rapidly changing environment and energy landscape.
We analyze policy proposals around legislation, economic incentives, and market changes; author whitepapers; organize convenings to facilitate dialogue, and; develop best practices so that you can meet renewable energy, climate, environmental justice, and other related goals.
