Do you have on-the-ground experience in the energy transition?


I am reaching out from a research group at Princeton University to hear about your experiences with and judgements on the energy transition. Your experience is valuable and unique. If you work on/with (or are aware of/impacted by) clean energy projects, we want to hear from you! The 5-15 minute survey (  asks about different aspects of low carbon energy projects—the good and the bad. 

We very much hope that you will take this opportunity to be involved with this high impact research and share it with colleagues who have similar experiences. This research will be widely publicized and has the potential to significantly inform the global approach to the energy transition.

Please reach out if you have any questions!


Here is some more information about our research:

​​The goal of this survey is to understand how much the energy sector and related sectors are changing their practices and behaviors to meet the challenges presented by the energy transition. It will be conducted annually until 2030. In From Ambition to Reality: Weaving the threads of net-zero delivery ( we identified five shifts in the practice of project and infrastructure development and delivery that would be needed to achieve the speed of infrastructure development needed to get to net-zero by 2050. The shifts are: (1) broaden our definition of value, (2) keep all technology options open, (3) standardize how we design and build, (4) collaborate like our world depends on it, and (5) use digital technology to move faster and build bigger. This research is focused on identifying progress on those shifts.
