We provide a range of services across all of our sectors that help you to make decisions and move ahead in uncertain circumstances. Our consultants understand science and technology, and have expertise and experience in business and policy. This allows us to look at your issue or need from all angles – and address the interactions a technology-, market-, or policy-focused consultancy might miss.
E4tech provides strategy development, analysis and support for early-stage organisations, major corporations, governments, and multilateral institutions. We understand how businesses develop and what problems can restrict their growth, and can identify new opportunities based on deep technical insight and broad sectoral knowledge.
We are flexible enough to support business development at many scales and in many different areas. Our knowledge of technology, business principles and policy and market environments means we can give strategic advice guided by all of these factors, set in the specific context of an individual organisation’s strengths and ambitions.
E4tech conducts technical, market and business assessments of target organisations as part of full due diligence processes, and similar assessments of major projects where government or multilateral funding is sought. We work with expert associates for financial aspects of such analyses. We also provide horizon-scanning services and can support the identification and down-selection of promising deals.
The E4tech team is also very comfortable with in-depth techno-economic and other analysis to support our clients with business and strategy development, positioning and other issues. Our analysis is based on two decades of experience, and a sound understanding of technology, policy and business factors and the interplay between them. We assess technical and commercial prospects based on our technical insight, market understanding, and technology and system modelling.
Sustainability runs through all of our activities, as well as being a stand-alone sector. We conduct LCAs, model land-use change and develop methodologies for carbon accounting in fuels, as well as supporting the process and methods of developing robust standards, also described in the Sustainability & Resources sector.
Energy was regulated long before sustainability was a policy driver, but this is now a major area of policy intervention. The scale and complexity of market failures such as climate change are leading to new policy instruments and new markets. We understand that rapidly changing boundary conditions define the energy technology sector, and we support robust decision-making within those conditions.
