GRIP and data services

In the fast-changing and complex world of renewable energy it pays to keep on top of ever-increasing amounts of industry data. That is why we created our Global Renewable Infrastructure Projects (GRIP) Database. RCG can also provide custom services and analysis, turning data into valuable insights.


What do we provide?

Our GRIP Database is a dynamic tool that provides access to strategic information on the global renewable energy market, across a range of technologies. At present the service is available for offshore wind projects only – but other technologies will be added soon.

This service provides reliable, real-time information that adds value to your business and helps you stay ahead of the game. Easy to use, secure and targeted precisely to your needs, the RCG GRIP Database is an invaluable tool for your organisation.

Our full Enterprise GRIP subscription, which includes RCG’s Global Offshore Wind: Annual Market Report, Quarterly Market Update reports and online database access for up to 10 users, is available for the outstanding price of £4,995 for a 12-month subscription.
