Marchment Hill Consulting (MHC) has gained a reputation with its clients as a trusted and valued partner. We bring deep knowledge of all aspects of the energy industry, including generation, transmission, distribution and retail. Working across the industry, regulators and government gives us a full picture of contemporary challenges. Our energy sector experts blend strategic insight with analytical capability to develop sound assessments of future possibilities.
We deliver engagements of varying scope and scale, from short and sharp strategy work to major organisational transformations.
The competitive segments of the electricity value chain face significant and continued uncertainty, for example, the shape and impact of carbon and emissions regulations. MHC’s expert team combines insights about current and future regulatory, technical and commercial industry drivers with rigorous assessments of current resourcing and service provision. Thus, we challenge business plans and recommend evidence-based alternatives that are more aligned to growth and efficiency targets.
MHC understands the influence of macroeconomic factors, technology pricing, energy/commodities pricing and policy and regulation on future industry scenarios. In our due diligence work for transmission and distribution businesses, we undertake market review and sizing, customer and competitor analysis, and risk modelling.
While increasing demands are being placed on networks to accommodate intermittent and distributed generation, public expectations of network support for renewables are not being matched by regulatory investment frameworks. MHC understands the risks and opportunities that disruptive technologies and emerging business models present for network businesses. We have up to date market knowledge of the policy, regulatory and industry barriers to adoption, including alternative vehicle technology.
New technologies for metering, network and load control are challenging network businesses' ability to reconcile technical, commercial and regulatory change. MHC’s experts have substantial knowledge of the emerging contestable smart meter market.
