What we do and who we are

Arbo develops software, delivers structured data, and provides research and consultation to inform the business decisions and transactions of energy transporters and traders. 

We focus on the messy realm of regulatory data impacting infrastructure development, operations, and ownership, because: In the regulatory realm, decisions and policy drive market and public responses that massively impact the siting, permitting, construction, and operations of the infrastructure that powers life. 

America needs to sustain and modernize its critical infrastructure. There can be no energy transition without the permission — to build things — like pipelines and electrical transmission. 

Arbo data scientists, regulatory gurus, and entrepreneurs are engaged in creating intelligence to help enable the evolution of energy and better connect commodity buyers and sellers.

 

OUR VISION & PURPOSE

OUR MISSION

OUR VALUES

OUR CULTURE

Help sustain America's ability to build and operate infrastructure that provides secure, affordable, and continuously lower carbon energy to everyone


The world’s most important industry is in a historic evolution impacting everyone. Arbo believes in America’s energy independence, innovation, and industry. The future requires robust infrastructure to transport and connect cleaner energy commodities to consumers. 

But there can be no energy transition without permission — to build things like pipelines and electrical transmission. 

That’s why we’re motivated to help our customers capture opportunities — by anticipating and interpreting the regulatory events that impact the investment, development, and utilization of these essential assets.
