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 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 investors.
In a competitive industry characterized by rapid and uncertain change, you need a tailored approach—not a generic methodology—to market strategy. We guide investors through energy infrastructure and utility investment decision-making, including market studies to identify potential targets, geographic expansion, and growth strategies.
Energy regulation and legislation guides energy infrastructure investment. We conduct deep analysis of the market landscape through understanding the customer’s perspective, assessing competition, interviewing key stakeholders across the industry, reviewing the plan for the business, and developing a go-forward value enhancement program.
We act as your innovation, technology, and regulatory partner to plan and deliver forward-thinking, “no-regrets” strategies that reduce risk, maximize return on investments, and uncover new market opportunities. Our deal teams evolve seamlessly into post-close teams—and work to create new revenue streams, build and manage technology platforms, and optimize operations.
