As a national leader in program evaluation, our team brings an experienced, trustworthy perspective into the numerous unbiased and independent evaluations that we conduct for our clients. TRC provides valuable insight into how energy efficiency portfolios and programs are performing, and we help demonstrate successes, identify growth opportunities, and develop strategies to overcome barriers.
