Energy is a sector with many challenges and influential campaigning activists. Whether it is decommissioning North Sea oil and gas facilities, local community engagement on nuclear energy facilities, making the case for shale gas, or helping make the UK a leader in fuel cell and hydrogen technolgies, SEC Newgate consultants can offer companies the complete range of expertise to secure their objectives and build and maintain their reputation.
