Advise. Implement. Engage.
For over 40 years, ICF has partnered with private and public sector clients to not just navigate the current energy landscape, but to shape its future. Our advisory services provide strategic planning and consultation --while most firms disappear after the mapping phase, our program implementation services allow us to execute against a set strategy to bring visions to life. We then go the extra mile and add the often-overlooked element of customer engagement and behavioral science that makes all the difference in driving outcomes. And of course, our approach is grounded in actionable data, insights and analytical services.
For decades ICF has helped clients harness the power of data to gain insights about the customer journey, a critical first step for utilities seeking to deepen their relevance and cultivate durable relationships.
ICF’s energy specialists understand the value of DER: how to optimize various distributed resources to meet grid needs over time, while considering economic, engineering, and environmental factors.
ICF helps clients formulate the most cost-effective, engaging energy efficiency strategies and deliver programs using proprietary analytics, innovative technology platforms, a dedicated customer service center, and world-class marketing.
Governments around the world are making energy efficiency a cornerstone of energy and environmental policy. The potential benefits to the public of lower costs, reduced pollution, cleaner energy, and strengthened resiliency are definitive of ICF’s work.
With more than 40 years of experience in the energy sector, we are trusted globally to offer clients actionable information about the value, as well as the interrelated cost and risk drivers, behind energy assets.
From strategy, regulatory design, and stakeholder engagement through plant-specific compliance, monitoring and verification, and customer engagement, ICF’s team of multidisciplinary specialists supports you at every stage of the process.
Understanding the critical need for legacy and emerging systems to support improved functionality over time, we advise clients on no-regrets investment strategies to achieve business objectives while planning for—and enabling—the grid of the future.
ICF believes the trend in independent engineering (IE) services toward watered-down, non-committal assessments is a move in the wrong direction. For utilities, developers, and other stakeholders participating in ever more complex and uncertain market terrains, we present due diligence with exacting legitimacy.
After successfully delivering hundreds of customer programs, ICF has first-hand knowledge of how to best help clients assess complex revenue and load growth issues (including impacts on grid operations), identify the most beneficial solutions, and implement with confidence.
ICF offers the comprehensive energy experience, technical due diligence, regulatory background and litigation competence to effectively represent our clients’ interests.
ICF can help clients effectively plan, invest, and manage systems to optimize revenues by increasing visibility to the grid edge and harvesting the value from all distributed generation systems.
