Evolved Energy Research is a leading research and consulting firm focused on the transition to a low-carbon energy economy. 

We are a group of engineers, economists and software developers who have created proprietary analytical tools specifically adapted to modeling energy system transformation. Our clients include consulting companies, government and regulating bodies, large technology and manufacturing companies, utilities, and NGOs. We have more experience modeling economy-wide decarbonization than any other firm. 

Our Work


Annual Decarbonization Perspective

Annually updated deep decarbonization benchmarks for the US, in partnership with Breakthrough Energy Ventures and Rhodium Group



Decarbonization scenarios for all EU member states and the UK, developed with Third Way


Net Zero America Project

Widely-cited US net-zero analysis developed with Princeton University



Net-zero pathways for Australia, encompassing both domestic and export emissions


Washington 2021 State Energy Strategy

Economy-wide roadmap to achieving state legislative emissions targets



Timely analysis of proposed federal energy and climate legislation, in partnership with Princeton University

Analytical Tools

Our best-in-class models pair bottoms-up energy demand forecasts with energy supply optimization. Because we build our software tools in-house, we can quickly adapt them to answer new research questions.


We project energy demand through a stock-rollover approach, using scenarios to understand how a changing energy landscape will impact demand profiles.

Our supply-side modeling simultaneously optimizes investment and operations, with integrated decision making across electricity, pipeline gas, hydrogen, liquid fuels, heat production and carbon management.

Our models combine geographic granularity with high temporal resolution.

We can represent up to 30 geographic zones, capturing energy imports and exports between zones, and adapting to any geography.

We match electricity and fuel supply and demand on an hourly basis, so our model results preserve system reliability even as intermittent renewable energy dominates.
