Renewables and Low-Carbon Solutions

Energy development has a whole new meaning today, as companies search for the right strategies, investments, and operating models around low-carbon and renewable energy. BCG’s approach equips companies to maximize value from participation.

Renewable and low-carbon energy sources are essential for sustainability—and they create opportunities. For both established and emerging players in the energy industry, a low-carbon future opens the door to new businesses in areas like solar, wind, hydrogen, and carbon capture. But maximizing returns often means understanding—and developing—a host of new capabilities and enablers. Our low-carbon and renewable energy consultants tie it all together.

How BCG Helps with Low-Carbon Solutions and Renewable Energy

Our team draws on deep commercial, technical, and regulatory expertise to create low-carbon and renewable energy leaders. This multitiered approach helps clients master all the elements that drive success. For established players, these include low-carbon solutions and portfolio strategy, operating model, and talent, as well as go-to-market planning, M&A, and digital and operational excellence. For emerging players, key issues include raising capital and scaling manufacturing.

Add to this the many complexities around renewable and low-carbon energy sources: auctions; supply chains; and markets, regulations, and incentives that take different shapes—with different implications—across regions.
