Research Strategy

To obtain the top large renewable energy companies we located several lists that named the top companies. We combined those lists and then analyzed each one for employee count and annual revenue. We used annual revenue as a metric to name our top list. The lists have been included as sources in this research document, as they might be of additional interest. The spreadsheet lists more than the top 6 companies, as we thought they might be of interest.
