Energetics is a national consulting practice with some of Australia’s leading advisors on climate and energy risk management. We work with Australia’s largest emitters of greenhouse gases and all levels of government to develop and drive solutions to increase renewable energy uptake, manage the risks of a hotter, drier climate and identify the opportunities that will lead to a net zero emissions economy.

We are seeking to appoint two Consultants into our Perth office. These are excellent opportunities for candidates with 1-7 years of experience to build the expertise required to deliver a wide range of our solutions across all of the sectors of the Australian economy.

  • Compiling emissions in accordance with government program requirements such as National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) and National Pollutant Inventory (NPI)
  • Assisting with data gathering and analysis for projects such as greenhouse gas reductions, energy procurement, or energy audits. This may include delivering key project tasks such as the management, refinement and analysis of large datasets
  • Assist our clients with navigating qualitative and quantitative impacts in changing domestic and international policy in working towards the Paris Agreement
