Helping clients make smarter sustainable investment decisions
Helping clients make smarter sustainable investment decisions

Trove Research is a specialist advisory firm dedicated to the energy transition and sustainable investing.  The firm's expertise builds on 30 years experience advising companies and governments in three core areas. 


Carbon markets


Trove Research has been involved in the compliance and voluntary carbon markets for over 20 years. We played an early role in the UK Emissions Trading Scheme advising companies on their participation, and the EU Emissions Trading Scheme working for governments and the European Commission on design rules and corporates advising on compliance and trading strategies. 


Guy Turner founded New Carbon Finance in 2006, later incorporated into Bloomberg New Energy Finance, to become the world's leading source of research and insight into the world's carbon markets covering the EU ETS, Clean Development Mechanism and Joint Implementation, as well as the regional schemes in the US of RGGI and California. 


We supported the early analysis of the voluntary carbon market co-producing the annual state and trends of the voluntary carbon market with Ecosystem Market Place. We are now engaged with the Carney Taskforce on Scaling Voluntary Carbon Markets providing supporting analysis.


In the carbon market sector we work with a broad range of organisations.


  • For governments we help prepare climate policies and plans, supporting the drafting of their NDCs
  • For carbon offset project developers and investors we develop business plans, providing forecasts of the scale and nature of future demand
  • For traders and intermediaries create business strategies to engage with offset suppliers and corporate buyers 


Corporate climate transition strategies


Mounting pressure from regulators and investors together with ever decreasing costs of low carbon energy are creating new challenges for firms whose businesses have been based around fossil fuels.  With direct experience in the oil & gas, renewable energy and finance sectors Trove Research is ideally placed to help clients navigate their journey towards Net Zero.


  • For asset owners and investor groups we support investment allocation decisions towards low carbon sectors, and engagement strategies where divestment is inappropriate.  We support client compliance and strategic planning around the Task Force on Climate related Financial Disclosures, EU Sustainable Finance Taxonomy and other investor-led initiatives.
  • For oil & gas firms we help them develop low carbon transition plans taking into market and regulatory drivers, cost evolution and profitability for a wide range of low carbon technologies.
  • For other companies we work with them to develop low carbon transition plans including setting corporate emissions targets and longer term Net Zero ambitions.

Renewable energy and low carbon investment


Renewable energy is at the heart of tackling climate change. Trove Research staff have been deeply involved in the sector for 20 years working on national policy, corporate strategy and project development.


As early as 2005 we advised the UK government on changes to the ROC system, and built detailed power price forecasting models for Europe, North America and Australia. Guy Turner, while on secondment to EDF Renewables UK as Strategy & Analysis Manager developed the firm’s long term corporate strategy and worked on several successful asset acquisitions in the UK and Ireland in on- and off-shore wind, battery storage and solar PV.


We now assist clients with decisions in a range of low carbon investments:


  • For asset owners and fund managers we help raise capital with tailored market analysis
  • For M&A transactions we provide commercial due diligence
  • For renewable energy developers we help develop auction bidding strategies
