Energy Markets Consultant


We are seeking to appoint an Energy Markets Consultant to work in either our Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane office. This role is suited to someone who has up to five years’ experience as energy market analyst or energy procurement specialist. Within this role you will develop and implement a range of possible approaches to the management of energy market risks for large commercial and industrial customers. You will provide independent advice to large energy users comparing the relative risks and potential rewards of tailored contracting approaches to buy electricity, gas and renewable energy.  Over time you will build a unique set of skills, knowledge and experience in energy markets, including: 

Electricity and gas market risk assessment and procurement: our forward-looking market-based advice on the optimal timing, volume and price of contracting decisions on the futures or spot market draws on our experts' trading experience in the wholesale energy markets, our unique market analysis and market modelling capabilities and our extensive market intelligence. 

Corporate renewable energy procurement: Energetics supports businesses by assessing a range of renewable energy sourcing options, from self-sourcing large-scale generation certificates to on-site generation or long term renewable Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs). We have been successful in negotiating such agreements and are advising on an increasing amount of deals in different market jurisdictions. 

Market-based valuation of power generation assets:  we leverage our quantitative price modelling capability and deep understanding of the underlying structural changes in supply and demand to forecast wholesale prices, revenue and price arbitrage options. This is further used to support the negotiation of power purchase agreements, energy supply agreements and tolling agreements with well balanced, risk-based charging arrangements and performance guarantees. 

While the focus on this role is around Energy Markets Consulting your work at Energetics may also give you exposure to our other solutions: strategy and policy, energy efficiency and productivity, energy accounting and reporting and audit. The mix of assignments will depend on business requirements along with your skills, aptitudes and passions.

The ideal candidate should have the following:
•    a solid understanding of energy markets and a genuine passion for building a career in this space
•    strong quantitative analysis skills using excel and other tools – previous experience with forecasting modelling and handling of large data sets would be viewed favourably
•    enthusiasm, outstanding communication and client facing skills
•    tertiary qualifications in business, commerce or engineering (or similar).

Your benefits will include:

•    an excellent and flexible working environment
•    a passionate, development focussed team leader, plus access to our staff acclaimed mentoring program
