Achieving internal buy-in for energy projects is a common challenge – especially when it’s a team of engineers and energy managers making the pitch instead of salespeople. Take advantage of this reference guide of tips from our team of sales consultants, engineers, and project specialists to help you get your next sustainability or resiliency project approved.

In “Getting the Green Light”, you’ll be taken step-by-step through:

• Building an internal team
• Warming up your audience
• Writing a project brief
• Creating your presentation
• Presenting to decision-makers
• Circling back if you don’t get immediate approval
