Creating the Right Climate for Domestic Clean Energy Manufacturing

How We Did It

A domestic clean energy manufacturer focused on creating American jobs and fueling the transition to renewable power sought federal government support to expand capacity in the United States while creating a durable industrial policy for the country. Through a comprehensive strategy that incorporated Administration and Capitol Hill outreach, Cogent helped the company cultivate allies and advance legislation to provide a manufacturing tax credit and ensure its inclusion in a landmark bill. Cogent also educated policymakers on the global marketplace for clean energy manufacturing and the needs of the industry to be competitive with US adversaries. Cogent’s earlier spadework for the client included securing cabinet-level participation in a groundbreaking ceremony for a new factory, unearthing bipartisan support for company initiatives and goals, creating messaging and materials to promote its American footprint and advising and executing on other strategies to advance the company’s interests in Washington.
