Energy Markets Consultant


Energetics’ Renewables and Energy Markets team continues to grow with demand for our leading-edge solutions expected to increase even further in 2020 and beyond. To meet this need we are seeking to welcome a Renewables and Energy Markets Consultant to work in our Sydney office. This role is suited to a new, or near new graduate.

Our team comprises a wide range of backgrounds and tertiary qualifications, including commerce, finance, business and engineering majors plus actuaries and ex traders. There is no particular qualification that you need to have to be successful in this role, you just need to be passionate about becoming a Renewables and Energy Market consultant.

Some more about the opportunity:

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 advise large energy users on innovative ways to mitigate electricity, gas and renewable energy procurement risk comparing the relative risks and rewards of the different purchasing strategies.  Over time you will build a unique set of skills, knowledge and experience in energy markets:

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 PPA deals 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.

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.

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.

Why work for Energetics

So, along with being a leader in Energy and Climate Risk consulting, what else sets a role from Energetics apart?

At Energetics you will build skills across the whole consulting skill set. From key account management to proposal writing/tender response, to project management and quality assurance. Add to this thought leadership and mentoring and you can see you’ll soon develop into a consultant of choice in Energy and Carbon Markets and beyond.
