Australia’s energy sector is critical to the welfare of the nation. But this complex sector faces a number of challenges.
Concerns over security and reliability of our electricity and gas markets; the difficulty of transitioning to a low carbon future; prices that have become volatile and difficult to predict, driven by non-market forces; and uncertainty about energy policy, regulatory approaches and future market design. These challenges require, more than ever, the best quality energy market advice, grounded in a deep understanding of the sector and the economics.
