Policy Development


AJW has crafted policies and regulations now in law that increase demand and improve market conditions for clients. Innovative technologies face different market barriers than their competing legacy technologies. Public policy can accelerate adoption of new technologies – but only when they are based on a clear understanding of the challenges facing the innovators. We match technology innovation with policy innovation. 

Examples of our work and the work of our principals include:

    • Developed legislation, now law, which spurred a significant increase in demand for building energy efficiency projects.
    • Worked with Congressional leadership and Administration officials to craft a biofuels policy that was signed into law and now provides important, new incentives for second-generation biofuels.
    • Ongoing work for a company that has pioneered hybrid tugboat technology to adapt EPA’s technology verification process, allowing this exciting new technology to be deployed.
