About Us



DBX Energy Consultants (DBX) partners with client management teams and subject matter experts to decode DOE and NNSA procurement and operations directives that pre-determine both contract awards and performance fees. Both DOE and NNSA are incredibly diverse and complex, and with incredibly diverse and complex organizations come incredibly diverse (and independent) practices and personalities. We are well-equipped to pilot you through this twenty-five billion dollar bureaucratic labyrinth, or convincingly explain why this market is not opportune for you.

Our value proposition is our skill and experience analyzing typically vague and conflicting requirements and expectations within a broader and deeper context and perspective. The benefit to you of our factoring “legacies” along with “all things contemporary” is a more balanced, clearer, and creative targeting of technical approaches and associated costs.

DBX professionals are not only well-grounded in DOE and NNSA sub-cultures, policies, and personalities. We also are adept at the engineering, science and technologies underpinning the tasks at hand. Decades of lessons-learned help shape and prioritize approaches that will resonate with Federal project directors and neighboring communities alike. Follow-up management assessments will mitigate unexpected shortcomings and structure effective corrective actions.
