The Need

Decarbonization presents the biggest business opportunity of this century. 

But in order to capitalize on the clean energy transition, businesses will need to stay ahead of policy, regulatory, and technological trends.

Failing to anticipate or understand policy and technological changes poses multiple risks. Unexpected policy-driven market shifts catch organizations by surprise, leading to poor investments or lost opportunities. It also means struggling to generate capital, as investors increasingly scrutinize ESG standards. Proactively tracking policy and technological trends empowers organizations to avoid these pitfalls.

New regulations and technologies can disrupt long-standing operational practices, forcing costly adaptations. 

Organizations that have eyes on the horizon outmaneuver those who are on their back foot.

We are focused
on cleantech and climate tech.

DG+ possesses a combination of expertise in energy-related technologies, policy and regulation, and data analysis and visualization to provide organizations with up-to-date policy and market intelligence. We identify the opportunities and challenges for your organization by bringing clarity to the complex legislative, policy, and regulatory landscape.
