NEEA’s Market Research and Evaluation (MRE) team partners with skilled third-party research firms to deliver research products in support of regional Market Transformation.

NEEA’s MRE team conducts a variety of market research projects, which help internal program teams identify and prioritize market barriers to target, opportunities to explore, and knowledge gaps to narrow in order to accelerate market adoption of more efficient products and practices.
