Project Description

ENERGY

Our team has experience navigating the increasingly complex world of energy policy in the public and private sectors.  We have worked extensively on behalf of clients to navigate complex regulatory frameworks mandated by the Illinois Power Authority (IPA), Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC), Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA), USEPA, and other regulatory bodies. Our campaigns establish positive environments around energy policy so clients can achieve long-term success. We attract and retain clients such as Invenergy and the Clean Energy Trust, among many others.

INVENERGY

Supporting project approvals with an aggressive outreach and media campaign

PROJECT: Invenergy is one of the world’s largest private developers of renewable energy. Resolute Consulting was engaged by to support numerous wind turbine projects. Opponents were well-organized and had gotten support by elected officials after misinformation had gone unchallenged after months of public meetings.

STRATEGY: Resolute developed and managed an aggressive public affairs campaign to reframe the conversation by using fact-based information and a rapid response protocol to respond to attacks and misinformation. Resolute also developed a robust online campaign and Resolute worked with the company’s on-the-ground team to engage and organize landowners who had a personal stake in the project.

OUTCOME: We launched an active earned and paid media program. A news conference supported by Resolute and hosted by a local village resulted in significant print and on television and the radio.
