Australia’s complex energy sector is critical to the welfare of the nation and faces a number of challenges due to concerns about the level of competition in the market, prices, regulatory settings, climate change, ownership and governance.


Our energy work

Frontier Economics has an unparalleled reputation for providing respected advice in the Australian electricity and gas sectors over the past 15 years. We have been at the forefront of critical debates in the sector including how to design, implement and improve energy markets; we have implemented some of the most important energy reforms on behalf of various State Governments: we have led and influenced debates on network regulation; we have provided expert testimony in high-stakes legal disputes; and our energy market models are unsurpassed in accounting for strategic market behaviour and assessing policy changes that affect energy markets.

Frontier consultants have led energy market reform programs and managed energy-related transactions across all Australian states, as well as throughout the Asia-Pacific region, Europe and North America.

Our suite of electricity market models, along with our in depth knowledge of Australia’s energy markets gives us an edge in providing real world advice on market outcomes.
