We asked our database of 30,000 energy professionals (energy managers, consultants, manufacturers, utilities, etc.) to answer questions about energy projects. We wanted to learn more about how many projects are getting proposed, how many are getting approved, and why viable energy projects aren't getting approved. We also wanted to understand better the role of 3rd party financing and if 3rd party financing options are presented in project proposals. In these survey findings, you will learn on average how many projects are approved, the top reasons why projects aren't getting approved, and how 3rd party financing plays a role in the energy project proposal process.
