Adour Energy

We help you grow new wholesale energy capabilities.
We give you the support and the tools to transform the anxiety of change in the excitement of new opportunities.

ABOUT US

We are a boutique advisory firm with over two decades of experience, specialising in wholesale energy markets (electricity, renewable, gas, oil and carbon). We have a deep knowledge of hedging and risk management in energy markets, along with demonstrable expertise in energy derivatives, renewable and carbon schemes, and international oil and gas markets.

The Australian energy market is facing deep structural transformation affecting all participants, from developers and generators to retailers and large consumers. The emergence of renewables as a prime source of energy, new energy technologies and evolving international market linkage creates a real challenge for current energy management practices - offering significant opportunity for innovative operators.

We partner with organisations to harness these exciting developments: to remain competitive, respond to market and regulatory changes and embrace the emergence of new energy management practices and solutions.
