The biggest names in energy turn to DDC.

The U.S. energy industry leads the worldwide revolution in energy innovation. With that leadership, America’s energy sector has also become the focus of a well-funded and aggressive opposition movement that is focused on stopping the efficient production and distribution of energy at the federal, state, and local level. Every sector faces ongoing, protracted challenges in city councils, county commissions, state and federal regulatory agencies, legislatures, and at the ballot box.

DDC's Energy Practice Group has a trusted record of success shaping issue advocacy campaigns that effectively fight back against these challenges. Working daily with the largest trade associations and corporations in the industry, the Energy Practice Group is able to shape public policy outcomes, fight electoral battles, and anticipate and stop threats before they obstruct growth and operations. Using the latest technology and applying the most advanced political and advocacy campaign strategies, DDC has an unparalleled record of mobilizing constituents, turning the tide, and winning tough battles at the local, state, and federal level.
