We work with domestic electric utilities, equipment manufacturers, commercial/industrial facilities, and nationally recognized energy R&D organizations.

In addition to having a strong base of its own experience, Nova networks with other power industry consultants and has affiliations with internationally recognized scientists in the areas of dielectrics, materials, thermodynamics and other disciplines.
