We are an independent advisory firm founded to help companies and organizations address the regulatory, technology, business, and competitive trends impacting water.
Our demonstrated research methodology and analytical framework, coupled with the team’s experience across a range of industries, enables Bluefield Research to deliver unparalleled intelligence into critical factors shaping industrial and municipal water markets.
Who are we?
We founded the company in 2012, because we believe that water is the most pressing issue facing our generation (and future generations). Maintaining the status quo in water and wastewater management is no longer an option and requires new strategies, alternative business models, and innovative solutions. Bluefield was launched to be at the leading edge of this change to support companies as they confront the challenge.
We know what it means to provide high quality research. Our team of experts has extensive experience providing strategic guidance to multinational companies and C-level executives. By leveraging our industry experience and leadership– company ownership and management– of other leading market research firms, clients receive unique, actionable intelligence.
We have in-depth and demonstrated knowledge of the water, environmental services, oil & gas, renewable energy, power, and telecom sectors that is increasingly valuable as water takes on a greater economic and critical role for cities and businesses, globally.
What do we offer?
For starters, we are not a news organization. We provide market intelligence backed by an objective, third-party view of the market. Our three distinctive product offerings: annual insight services, off-the-shelf insight reports available for purchase, and consulting services.
When clients engage with Bluefield, they gain immediate access our research archives, upcoming reports and data, and a team of water market experts prepared to address critical questions. Bluefield supports all types of companies across the water sector and related industries– technology & equipment providers, EPCs, service companies, investors, municipal utilities, and industrial companies.
Why use Bluefield?
We focus exclusively on water. We stand behind our research– data-backed insights based on a rigorous methodology– that is strengthened by our role as a partner in your growth.
We are global– with offices in Boston and Barcelona– and our geographically diverse team of experts with backgrounds in business, engineering, and water, allows clients to tap a broad range perspectives.
What’s in a name?
The origin of Bluefield came about for several reasons. Our research is focused on identifying greenfield opportunities in water: water + greenfield = bluefield. Our team of water experts is focused on identifying new opportunities and advancing strategies going forward.
Secondly, the name “Bluefield” is of historical significance. In 1935 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Bluefield Water Works and Improvement Co. v. Public Service Commission of West Virginia that regulated utilities are entitled to earn a fair and reasonable rate of return on their capital investments. Like the landmark case, we strive to set the standard for research in water going forward.
