Trinomics B.V. (formerly Triple E Consulting – Energy, Environment & Economics B.V.) is an economic policy consultancy conducting research and giving policy advice related to energy, environment and climate change. Our clients are the international, European and national public sector and NGOs. To tackle the world’s most pressing sustainability challenges and to support the transition to a low-carbon economy, Trinomics works at the forefront of policy analyses, prospective studies, and recommendations for improved governance and policy-making. Our research delivers the necessary facts and figures, assesses potential economic impacts of policy decisions at stake, and presents conclusions and recommendations in a clear, concise and accessible way. We help our clients to identify best strategies and policies and provide a knowledge base for their decision-making.

Trinomics was founded in October 2012 by our dynamic team of interdisciplinary, versatile and international experts. Economics is our starting point, and we have skilled staff with backgrounds in energy science, environmental science, geography, law, geology, and political science. With our extensive expert network, we offer local presence around the globe, with a physical presence in the Netherlands, Belgium, the United Kingdom, Germany and Singapore.

Trinomics’ experts have carried out projects for various international public sector clients such as European Commission’s DG CLIMA, DG Energy and JRC, the European Parliament and the European Environment Agency. Trinomics staff has broad CCS/CCU expertise and has worked on several studies and projects over the last years that are relevant for this assignment. We were project partner in the SCOT project (Smart CO2 Transformation), a large scale FP7 project that aimed to prepare European policy on CCU. Competitiveness, low-carbon economy and security of supply are key themes in our work. Our track record includes studies on CCS, carbon leakage policy andcompetitiveness. We also have built up considerable knowledge on manufacturing industries, especially the chemical industry, and energy markets, such as the impacts of shale gas and balancing and flexibility mechanisms in an increasingly integrated European power market, as well as policy pathways towards the realisation of a fully integrated energy market within the Energy Union.
