In 2018, with decades of experience at the forefront of communications strategies in the renewable energy industry, the Innovant Public Relations team decided to branch out. Innovant Public Relations, a communications strategy firm, was launched with the goal of supporting companies, both in the clean energy sector and elsewhere, that are seeking community outreach counsel and support, media relations, event management, and branding. We understand the importance of listening to our clients, using a narrative that resonates with target audiences, working on tight deadlines, and building and maintaining lasting relationships.
