Pencil's mission is to accelerate the energy transition by making energy policy more understandable, accessible, and computable.
At Pencil, we believe that the energy transition requires a data-driven approach. Our founders, who come from diverse backgrounds in policy, and technology, saw a need for a solution that could bring order to the complexity of policy data. With this vision, Pencil was born.
We envision a world where policy data is readily available and easily understood, enabling a smooth transition to a sustainable energy future.
Our technology is built on cutting-edge data science and machine learning techniques, enabling us to gather, structure, and analyze policy data on a massive scale.
