Diane Cherry Consulting: 2023 Year in Review



This has been another successful year at Diane Cherry Consulting , working with clients and stakeholders on business development, strategic communications, and policy and regulatory analysis of clean energy markets. We operate throughout the Southeastern U.S. but this year increasingly worked with companies that have a national and global footprint.


Several highlights of our work are summarized below.


Opportunities from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and the Inflation Reduction Act: We spent a good part of this year working with independent power producers, supply chain companies, and others to compile information and recommend how to navigate the daunting but exciting opportunities of these major federal laws. For example, we assisted a Fortune 500 company pursuing global opportunities for their products in the emerging hydrogen economy. 


Marketing and Communications for Clean Energy Companies:  We continue to partner with multiple companies to market and communicate their work. Our work ranges from writing and developing monthly newsletter articles, websites, and social media, as well as internal communication on major company strategic decisions. As one example, we placed quarterly articles for a renewable energy finance provider in Renewable Energy World throughout the year. In another case, we worked with a New England solar company to tell their story of brownfield development to community solar.


Strategic Advising for Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure: We spent a significant amount of time this year advising military bases, government clients, and others on locating, financing, and constructing multiple EV charging locations for their electric transportation needs. For example, we are working with a North Carolina military base on leasing arrangements for EV charging infrastructure, following design and Make Ready construction.


Greenhouse Gas Emission Reporting: This year we advised clients as they navigated the greenhouse gas inventory process. We provided resources and support to ensure GHG Protocol-compliant reporting as required by a General Services Administration (GSA) One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Solution (OASIS) contract.


In addition to the client work, we presented a solar energy policy lecture for a Duke University graduate course, organized a session for the N.C. Association of County Commissions on solar and land use policy, and organized, moderated, and spoke on three panels for the Department of Defense Energy and Environmental Policy, EV Charging on Military Bases, and PFAS Requirements. 


As the year ends, we are grateful to work alongside our clients, stakeholders, and others to decarbonize and move us toward a cleaner environment and economy.
