  • Supervise project teams of Consultants and Senior Consultants, ensuring their up-skilling, coaching and development.

2.       Business development (depending on experience and seniority)

Example projects – Energy

Some of our recently completed projects focused on Electricity Networks include:

  • Define a ten-year vision for transitioning a DNSP to a DSO, developing DSO target state across multiple planning time horizons and the underlying roadmap leading to each target state.

  • Project Edith (report viewable HERE), partnering with Ausgrid and Reposit Power to explore an approach to higher levels of DER integration with the network

  • Non-network solutions evaluation tool – a framework for evaluating and optimising non-network solutions (battery storage, SAPS, microgrid, demand response etc.), with a cost benefit analysis of non-network solutions against network augmentation projects, to identify capital deferring opportunities for a distribution network service provider.

  • Energy storage opportunity study and strategic procurement support: Network battery business model assessment, network locations suitability evaluation, procurement scope definition and market sounding

  • DER and load forecasting for multiple network operators: our data science team develops a solution to forecast future load and DER penetration (PV, battery, EV etc.) which is used by major Australian DNSPs for their planning needs.

  • Microgrids market study and go-to-market strategy – support to identify the most attractive countries in Asia for C&I microgrids, assess the market opportunity, and develop the go-to-market strategy for the new venture between an international technology supplier and global investment fund.

  • Australian DER market study and go-to-market strategy – analysis of the Australian DER market and its likely evolution in the future, and identification of opportunities for new positionings in Australia’s future distributed smart grid. Ongoing support with go-to-market strategy within the distributed energy space.

  • National Bioenergy Roadmap – similarly to the National Hydrogen Strategy, the roadmap has developed short and medium-term actions and demonstrates Australia’s competitive bioenergy markets to grow the sector.
