Clean Energy Investment Advisory

Investment in clean energy technology and infrastructure is on the rise. We enable investors to get the most out of their energy investments—informed by our deep experience helping utilities modernize their entire asset portfolios.

Market forces such as emerging technology, increased energy costs, and sustained societal desire for a clean energy future are accelerating growth in the clean energy sector where PE firms and investors are finding attractive and viable investment opportunities. Investments require extensive industry knowledge—and in a highly regulated industry, it’s easy for deals to fall short. That’s where West Monroe clean energy consulting comes in.  

We have expert domain knowledge in electric, natural gas, renewable, distributed energy, and emerging technology/infrastructure such as electric vehicles, energy storage, and hydrogen. 

We have a unique understanding of how energy policy, real asset investment, grid resiliency, and continued electrification will impact the design and build of new critical infrastructure. We apply that knowledge to analyze both the clean energy and traditional energy sectors, providing unmatched market, competitive, regulatory, and CapEx/OpEx advisory for clean energy investors.
