Market Research for the
utilities Industry

uniquely energetic

Leaders in the utilities industry have a tough job. They aren’t trying to persuade customers to make a one-time purchase decision, but rather to make sweeping changes to how they run their homes and businesses. This work requires educational campaigns, financial incentives, and a deep understanding of what’s driving customers’ behaviors.


we address:

  • why do customers make the daily energy use choices they make?
  • how can we make households and businesses more energy efficient?
  • how are architects, builders, and energy consultants impacting the energy efficiency of new construction projects and how can we influence their choices?
  • how well are our advertisements resonating?
  • what can we do to move the needle and make an impact on perceptions of our brand and our industry at large?
  • what are the personas or segments within our target market and how can we communicate with them differently?

we go above
and beyond

None of these questions is simple. So, it’s critical to get valuable and accurate data that can lead you to actionable insights. The outcome of your work is not just about the success of your company, it also impacts the health of the planet now and in the future.
