Our value proposition is providing a viable, cost-effective alternative to the larger international firms without making any sacrifice on quality or excellence in service delivery

Our team of experts in the energy sector add value across all aspects of the project lifespan, from the initial stages of development through to financial close and beyond

How we can help

The South Australian power system has recently undergone a rapid transformation into one of the most technologically diverse power systems, with some of the highest levels of renewable penetration, anywhere in the world.

Members of our energy team have been at the forefront of this transformation and played a pivotal role in a considerable number of recent landmark energy projects. We have worked in the sector since major transformation began in the 1990s and our understanding of the industry is unrivalled.

In a quickly evolving regulatory (and technical) environment, energy project development is becoming increasingly complex. We leverage our direct experience in the energy industry to cut through complexity and help deliver positive, cost-effective outcomes.

Our dedicated team of experts understand what it takes to bring energy projects to financial close and we work in close partnership with clients operating across all parts of the energy value chain to make this a reality. We provide user-friendly advice to clients on a daily basis in relation to challenges faced in all of the key areas relevant to energy project development.

Our value proposition is that we bring a viable, cost-effective, alternative to the larger international firms without making any sacrifice on quality or excellence in service delivery. We are highly experienced and respected in the energy sector, with multiple team members having been involved in a large number of transformational energy projects, and we are uniquely placed to provide our clients with the benefit of our deeply embedded industry relationships.

Our clients include generation/storage developers, commercial and industrial load customers (large energy users), offtakers and retailers, transmission and distribution network companies, financiers and equity investors, service contractors and industry bodies and associations.

We support the industry through regular speaking engagements, alerts and articles and our energy team members are actively involved in peak industry associations, including the Clean Energy Council, the Australian Institute of Energy, the Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association, the South Australian Chamber of Mines and Energy and the Minerals and Energy Advisory Council.
