    • EnerKey Long Term Perspective Group – a governance think tank model
    • Transport Emission Inventory – informed mobility planning
    • Energy Technology Handbook – sustainable technologies for the future
    • CDM – emission trade evaluation tool
    • iEEECo – energy and cost efficient settlements
    • African Sustainable House – a holistic dwelling approach
