Ranging from executive-level insight on issues of long-term strategic significance, to management support; Future Effect's advisory services transfer the value of our deep understanding of the Western Australian energy industry to our clients.
Future Effect’s consulting team has significant and recent experience in Australia’s regulated electricity markets, the Wholesale Energy Market (WEM) and the National Energy Market (NEM) as well as both management and consulting experience with public and private participants in unregulated regional energy markets, including the North West Interconnected System, Horizon Power’s non-interconnected systems and various remote indigenous communities and mine-sites.
In particular, Future Effect has extensive proprietary knowledge of the Western Australian energy industry. This includes models analysing the segment returns for generic electricity and gas businesses and tools for assessing and comparing major new commitments. Future Effect’s bespoke modelling tools, constructed to mimic the dynamics of the Western Australian marketplace, include fuel supply and delivery, energy demand and pricing and the operation of the WEM. Future Effect is able to modify these tools to incorporate the specific requirements of the client in a reasonably short time frame.
