Climate change is driving an unprecedented transformation in the global energy sector. The energy industry is transitioning to a low carbon, decentralised future, facing a wide range of engineering and economic challenges along the way.

Our clients span the energy value chain including renewable energy and storage developers, energy sector investors, transmission and distribution network service providers, retailers, regulators and governments.

Recent projects include:

  • Undertaking market due diligence and market modelling, including forecasting electricity prices, marginal loss factors, generation curtailment and FCAS market outcomes, to support the financing, acquisition, sale and valuation of batteries, pump-hydro, solar farms and wind farms, and
  • Conducting modelling of electricity markets to inform the development of Government policy including the NSW Electricity Infrastructure Roadmap and the Western Australia Whole of System Plan.
