Policy, regulation and rates

Our approach

Energy policy and regulation guide energy infrastructure investment and the need for energy, utility and market transformation. We understand how to manage uncertainty and help you use regulatory and policy changes to create opportunities to optimise operational and financial performance.

Our insights

What we can do for you

We provide advocacy and advisory services, helping you make your case to policy makers, create business cases and plans for price controls, analyse rates and implement rate and price control strategies.

  • Maximise your performance
    Collectively, our experts have hundreds of years of experience in policy and regulation. We use this knowledge to work collaboratively to build transparency and rate structures that ensure cost recovery and compliance.
  • Develop industry leading rate forecasts
    We have developed long-range retail residential and non-residential rates forecasts for diverse clients, including residential and commercial solar developers, community solar and distributed generation developers, private equity and infrastructure investors, regulatory agencies and utilities.
  • Support your rate cases and price controls
    We help utilities develop and implement regulatory finance and accounting practices that both comply with and maximise regulatory cost recovery opportunities. Our reports guide internal policy and support rate cases and other regulatory filings.
  • Energy market and utility advisory
    For over two decades, we’ve built on a mix of third-party and proprietary tools to establish industry leading analytics capabilities in natural gas markets, power markets, renewable markets, generation and storage asset modelling and valuation, retail and wholesale rate forecasting, regulatory matters, and sustainability and Net Zero.
  • Provide Independent Evaluator services
    When conducting Independent Evaluator assignments, we understand that a truly independent view of the procurement process is critical. We combine our decades of energy market and utility advisory experience to provide unbiased, expert Independent Evaluator services to entities across the energy industry, from utilities, transmission providers, and regulatory bodies to infrastructure investors and project developers alike. In the past five years alone, we have completed more than 25 different Independent Evaluator and Independent assignments for four different western U.S. Investor-Owned Utilities, including three IOUs in California and one in the Pacific Northwest. In that time frame, we have seen the focus of Independent Evaluator assignments shift toward solar, wind, and storage procurement as regulators seek to ensure that electric providers are able to meet evolving clean energy supply goals.
