Our clients include regulated electric utilities, gas utilities, pipelines, state governments and regulators, producers, buyers and sellers of electricity and natural gas, hydropower facilities, independent power developers and energy marketers in virtually all aspects of utility regulation, energy project development, energy procurement, mergers and acquisitions, risk management and smart grid implementation.
