Energy, Resources & Utilities

Energy, Resources & Utilities

As more people in more places seek to improve their quality of life, the critical inputs for current and future generations to live better and more sustainably are in increasing demand.

Many nations and organisations have committed to eliminating carbon emissions from their use of energy. Citizens, customers and staff are looking for leadership and support through the accelerating energy transition.

Our consultants have experience and expertise in strategy, policy, energy, decarbonisation and engagement to help governments, businesses and not-for-profits plan and implement their contribution to limiting climate change, perhaps the greatest challenge of this century.

Our work in this domain aligns with our public commitment to support the transition to net-zero emissions.

Our consulting services include

Energy policy and regulation

The right policy settings and regulation can improve the sustainability, reliability and affordability of energy. Our consultants can support you with energy system transition, decarbonisation and net-zero policy, customer protections, regulatory oversight and evaluation, and economic and data analysis.

Vision and strategy

Vision and strategy can grow and transform energy businesses and support decarbonisation. Our consultants can guide your efforts through environment scanning and opportunity assessment, market entry and growth strategies, decarbonisation strategies and regulatory and funding support for net-zero investments.

Platform and service design

Digital platforms and services can enable innovation in customer experience, regulation, and energy supply and demand. Our consultants have the expertise to support you with customer experience strategy and design, digital strategy and operating models, product design and commercialisation, and digital asset management.

Operation and system redesign

It can be challenging to redesign operations and systems, including enhancing leadership, to uplift performance. Our consultants can support you with culture change and leadership development, workforce planning and digitisation, operating model design and implementation, and data strategy and redesign.

Social licence to operate

Organisations need to operate in constructive partnership with communities in order to preserve social license. Our consultants can guide your efforts on issues including corporate social responsibility, rights and involvement of traditional owners, land use and participation agreements, and energy safety.

Stakeholder engagement

Effective engagement with policy makers and communities is vital to an organisation’s efforts to activate strategies. Our consultants can help you have a real impact with policy position statements, government and industry collaboration forums, and engagement and consultation with communities, staff and industry.



Net Zero Australia is a ground-breaking study from The University of Queensland, the University of Melbourne, Princeton University, and Nous Group. The mobilisation report ‘How to make net zero happen’ was released in July 2023. It builds upon the final modelling results from the study and explores what governments, businesses and households should do to accelerate towards net zero.

How we go beyond checking the boxes on ESG

We think the need for good conduct goes beyond an organisation checking the boxes on ESG responsibilities. We partner with organisations to achieve purpose, sustainability and impact.

Tall tree

Greater disclosure on sustainability is coming. Here’s how to ready your organisation

The days when sustainability was merely nice for an organisation to have is long gone. Today stakeholders expect the organisations they buy from, trade with, own shares in and work for will act, measure and report on their sustainability practices.

Pathways to Net Zero

Pathways to Net Zero: The challenge of decarbonising business and industry


There are big questions for transition leaders, including what support should government provide, to what extent can a sector decarbonise, and what is the electricity profile of customers.

Women in STEM

We have made little progress on women in STEM


The issues faced by women in STEM have been well documented. Governments, educational institutions and industry have regularly reported on the lack of women in STEM roles.
