We have extensive experience conducting market research and process evaluation of energy efficiency and demand response programs. The goal of process evaluation is to assess program effectiveness and identify potential areas of improvement. Process evaluations can provide feedback from the perspective of customers, trade allies, program administrators and other stakeholder groups. Ultimately, the goal of our market research and process evaluation activities is to provide actionable findings and recommendations that can positively impact our clients’ programs and other initiatives.
