Power and Utilities

How we can help

The world is at the midpoint of a massive energy-related transformation.  This includes a significant increase in electricity compared to other sources. The climate change agenda, cost pressures, technological breakthroughs, regulatory changes and consumer choice create a complex strategic landscape for utilities.  In this decarbonising, distributed and digitised world, utilities are searching for ways to sustainable, affordable energy services through new business models, eco-systems, technologies and platforms. 

We help utilities develop new strategies, build new operating models, create new organisations and new ways of managing to deliver superior customer and investor value. Our practice supports building solutions for the African continent in delivering affordable electricity to all to enable sustainable economic growth.

How we can help

South Africa has extensive, proven resources of renewable energy, especially in solar, wind, and wave energy. Renewable energy is essential to South Africa, as this clean source of energy has a much lower environmental impact than the fossil fuels that currently make up the majority of the energy mix in the country. South Africa’s renewable energy sector experienced explosive growth in the past few years and has the potential to create thousands of long-term sustainable jobs and ensure energy security in the future. 

Our team of experts can help with financing and transactional support, mergers and acquisitions, modelling, strategy, clean development management (CDM) project design and development, risk management, governance, due diligence, greenhouse gases (GHG) data management and reporting, public policy and delivery and advice to developers, investors and sponsors.
