Energy and Utilities
We have broad capabilities across the Energy and Utilities sectors, offering a range of relevant subscription services and bespoke analysis to support clients’ business and financial projections in the short, medium and long term.
How we support clients in the energy and utilities sectors
Our labour, material and construction cost escalation advice has been used by utilities to prepare their revenue proposals and in re-negotiating their network access arrangements. Our forecasts have also been used to undertake pre-feasibility studies and for the ongoing monitoring of budgets for large investment projects.
We have extensive experience in developing demand forecasting models that link demand for products or services with movements in end-use sector activity, leveraging our strength in detailed bottom-up industry analysis at both the regional and sub-sector level, with our Australian and global macroeconomic forecasting capabilities.
Investment and maintenance forecasting
We maintain extensive databases of current and forecast engineering construction activity and maintenance requirements for major infrastructure classes and provide detailed breakdowns for engineering construction activity within the electricity, water supply and storage, and sewerage and drainage sectors.
Electricity consumption and price forecasts
BIS Oxford Economics provides clients with short and long term forecasts of electricity consumption and wholesale electricity prices, leveraging our strength in understanding individual industries and their forecast outlook.
