Eneref Report Methodology

Eneref Institute is a research and advocacy organization. But first and foremost is advocacy.

The goal of our reports is the implementation of solutions we recommend in our reports, which are based on extensive research. Eneref Reports are laid out as described below. Our non-traditional approach is designed to influence decision-makers to implement sound solutions and foster conversations that lead to results.
