Transaction & market advisory services
Determining the opportunities created by the introduction of new or modified climate change policies, how markets will evolve and how best to respond to these new challenges are all issues that businesses face.
Frontier Economics regularly assists private sector clients and potential investors to understand these risks and opportunities. We help clients understand the effects of climate change policies, and think about how markets will evolve and react. This includes advice to energy sector participants (current or potential), offset providers (such as forestry) and energy regulators who must adapt to changing markets. This advice ranges from the strategic advice to financial valuations based on the Frontier Economics forecasts of energy prices and renewable certificates.
We have provided market advisory or competition advice on almost all major generator transactions in the National Electricity Market, with a combined value of over $20 billion. We use the Frontier Economics’ electricity market models to support this advice, usually for wholesale electricity price forecasts as inputs into asset valuation models.
