DONOVAN ENERGY CONSULTING
Donovan Energy’s leadership team has been working at the forefront of clean energy and energy efficiency for decades. We are ready to deploy our expertise to solve strategic challenges for our private sector and non-profit clients.
With an energy roadmap, we take a strategic, long-term view of how to invest in a building, campus or asset portfolio to achieve desired goals of sustainability and cost efficiencies. In the roadmap, we articulate clear objectives and measures of success—all backed by data—to help you gain support and buy-in from your stakeholders.
A Donovan Energy roadmap supports one or more of the following objectives:
Planning for, and executing on, corporate sustainability or carbon reduction goals
Eligibility for PACE financing
Eligibility for state property tax and sales tax exemptions
We receive many inbound requests from our commercial customers to help them understand whether an investment in an on-site solar and/or storage system makes financial sense. With today’s rock-bottom prices on solar equipment, the availability of generous tax incentives, and innovative financing solutions, the answer is often “yes.” We offer three “phases” of solar/storage consulting:
Providing a “quick-and-dirty” portfolio analysis to identify the most promising site(s) for solar development within a commercial portfolio (rooftop, ground-mount, and/or canopy).
Performing a detailed feasibility study, system design, and financial analysis for one or more selected sites, including pre-interconnection applications (if required).
Serving as “Owner’s Representative” for solar/storage development, assisting with competitive procurement, interconnection arrangements, project management, and more.
NON-PROFIT AND ADVOCACY
Our team’s in-depth knowledge of utility and power finance, wholesale power markets, state and federal regulatory affairs, environmental policy and regulation, and non-profit management makes us a good fit to support the energy-related strategic goals of charitable organizations, trade associations, and private foundations.

Strategic campaign planning
Stakeholder engagement and networking among utilities, customer groups, regulators, environmental organizations, analysts, and debt and equity investors
