Working towards advancements in a just and equitable energy transition requires a multi-disciplinary approach, bringing together perspectives and experiences from outside of the energy industry to facilitate holistic solutions that take into account and go beyond the inequities in energy.  

We are excited to introduce our team of diverse experts whose mission is to assist our customers to identify, educate and help underrepresented communities, businesses and individuals to accelerate transition to clean and affordable energy sources.
