Isle Utilities is a boutique technology and innovation consultancy with global headquarters in the UK and local headquarters in Palo Alto, CA. Isle aims to accelerate the commercialization of disruptive emerging water technologies. We do this through two core capabilities, through our Technology Approval Group (TAG) – a unique innovation forum for global water utilities and our advisory services.
TAG is a unique innovation forum for water utilities that was established in the UK in November 2005 and is a core distinction of the Isle Utilities brand. The aim of the forum is to accelerate the market uptake of novel technologies within the water sector. This is done by engaging the end-users (i.e. water utilities), venture capital investors and potential industry partners (i.e. contractors, consultants) during the pre-commercial stages of technology development. Typical TAG forums are delivered by Isle throughout the US for our members.
