The Energy Department is the core business unit in GFA Consulting Group for the development and implementation of sustainable energy projects along the energy value chain – from production to consumption. However, many projects follow a multidisciplinary approach, where different development challenges are addressed from the perspective of sustainable energy, climate policy, urban governance and planning, vocational training and higher education, circular economy, climate adaptation, biodiversity, and others. Projects implemented by other departments may also address energy related issues. Learn more about our specialized knowledge and projects in the area of energy at this link.
