About the Ask an Expert Service

Who is eligible?

Clean energy policy support is available to representatives of most government agencies and any technical institutes assisting governments. We cannot respond to employment inquiries or solicitations for technology development.

The Clean Energy Solutions Center connects governments seeking policy information and advice with a policy expert who can provide reliable and unbiased quick-response advice and information.

The Ask an Expert service makes it easy to request assistance and in-depth answers to your policy questions. Simply complete the assistance form, and within two days, the Solutions Center will match you with one of our more than 50 global experts selected as authoritative leaders on specific clean energy policy topics.

The Clean Energy Solutions Center has assisted with more than 250 requests from more than 90 countries and regions worldwide. This video, recent recipients of this support discuss how the Solutions Center’s Ask an Expert service has helped them meet their clean energy goals.

How does the Solutions Center help?

The Clean Energy Solutions Center experts assist policymakers with many types of clean energy policy, including development of strategies, regulations and standards, financial incentives and deployment programs. These clean energy policy experts review drafts of measures and strategies, conduct research, share best practices from other countries, and engage in consultations by phone and email.

Solutions Center support is limited to remote assistance and clean energy policy topics. We do not provide assistance with project development or technology and system assessment.

If you prefer self-guided research to technical assistance, our Clean Energy Policy Briefs provide current good practices, lessons learned and success stories for a range of clean energy policies.
