Moving renewables and emerging technologies forward

Invest, integrate, evolve and create a new tech-enabled energy future for your company and society.

The cleaner energy transition touches nearly everyone: from the energy, utilities, and cleantech companies working to usher in a new energy future to the customers and businesses they serve. It continues to grow as a focus for regulators, investors, customers and society.

As companies navigate the transformation of their business operations to reduce greenhouse emissions, achieve sustainability or environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals, and introduce emerging technology, they’re also opening doors to a more sustainable and prosperous future. This could mean tapping into available incentives, or expanding portfolios by investing in renewable energy, alternative green energy technologies, and fuel sources, as well as new technologies like carbon capture.

Companies outside the traditional energy space also pursue similar initiatives to reduce their carbon footprint and meet stakeholder pressures. In our PwC 2023 US Large Energy User Survey, 74% of leaders from across industries said they have comprehensive energy strategies that include moving to sustainable and renewable energy sources. More than 90% wanted external support for these energy initiatives. We're here to support you in your journey through the energy transition by bringing relevant industry perspectives, experienced professionals, and a suite of services.
