"Many legacy companies in the energy sector are at an inflection point for how to next invest into the future. It is clear that renewables will lead the way. However, businesses are still grappling with how to navigate this significant change in the industry."

Energy, power, and utilities insights

Our team have worked with major energy retailers, distributors and suppliers over a number of years. Having advised both the government and the private sector on policy and project implementation, we bring a diverse set of skills to this sector.

Governments at both the federal and state level are continuing to support investment in power and utilities, driven by the decreasing cost of renewables, and the increasing public aversion to non-renewable energy sources.

Key value metrics

  • Cost per customer acquisition
  • Number of customers
  • Cost per megawatt hour (Mw/h)
  • Generation capacity and output by fuel source

​Businesses to watch

With a large stake in the energy, power and utilities sector, Macquarie Bank continues to invest in major projects. Their position as the world's largest infrastructure asset manager has seen them lead the way for other financiers to commit to the future of the sector.

Tesla has made a big bet on the energy, power and utilities sector in Australia, developing a $38M battery plant in South Australia. As a global leader in electric vehicle technology, battery technology, and research and development, the company is leading the way for other private sector involvement.
