Envigour specializes in strategic policy development. We have extensive experience in development of energy policy, strategies, and plans. We also can advise on how to ensure successful implementation.
Development can bring uncertainty and a risk the public may lose confidence that the development will be managed to a positive outcome. Envigour believes public confidence can grow when development is done with respect, open dialogue and is knowledge based. We can help.
