"Energy policy is changing rapidly at a national level, but energy knows no borders. We prepare our clients where regulation is regionally coordinated, but also where neighbouring markets take diverging approaches to energy policy."

"Energy network companies play a crucial on the path to a low carbon economy. They need to connect power from renewable sources, balance intermittent supply, and provide network capacity to meet rising electricity demands from electric vehicles. We help network companies fulfil this new role in the most cost-effective way for their customers."

Focus on your sector

Market design

We are working with governments and regulators to redesign energy markets to support decarbonisation and decentralisation, and capitalise on opportunities created by data and new technologies.

Price controls and incentives

We are working with regulators in creating novel incentive mechanisms for network and system operators to drive value for customers, and supporting companies in preparing their regulatory submissions.

Competition

We are working with network companies and market authorities to make the energy markets more transparent and fairer, and ensure competition delivers value for money and high quality service for customers.

Tariffs and charging

We are working with regulators and network companies to design network access products and charging that provide customer choice and better reflect the costs of different users on the network, thus creating the right time of use and locational incentives.
