Clean energy is that which is produced through methods that do not release greenhouse gases or any other pollutants. Clean energy is good as it keeps global warming and pollution lower and keeps the planet sustainable. Renewable energy is that which is derived from some natural process that is regenerated over relatively short periods of time and thus not likely to be depleted. Renewable energy is good because it does not deplete thus giving us a constant source at a more levelized price. While “clean energy” (which does not pollute) and “renewable energy” (which is easily regenerated) do, however, quite often encompass the same types of energy – like biomass & biofuels, geothermal, hydropower, solar, and wind. As these two energy classifications are so closely connected, clean energy experts and renewable energy experts are also quite often one in the same. They normally have an extensive education and work history in one particular type of renewable, clean energy and are available to assist clients with a myriad of questions and issues in these projects.
Large renewable energy and biochemical consulting firms like Lee Enterprises Consulting normally offer a wide range of services in biofuels, biochemicals, biotechnologies, biomaterials, synthetic biology commercialization, feedstocks, and hemp/cannabis. These companies should have business and financial services like due diligence, feedstock availability, grants and loans and bio market research. The company also offers technical and engineering related services like techno economic analysis, environmental evaluations, feasibility studies, risk analysis and expert witness engagements. They might also have strategic partnerships in place to assist clients with insurance, legal, accounting, plant fabrication, feedstock procurement.
