The Energy Project is a specialist energy consulting firm. We provide independent analysis, insights and advice on a range of energy related challenges faced by commercial, institutional and government clients. 

We don’t sell equipment. Rather, we work closely with clients to provide them with the tools needed to make sound business decisions about their energy needs.

Our team brings together decades of international and local experience across a range of sectors including wholesale energy markets, policy and regulation, solar power projects, lighting design, building management, energy procurement and energy networks.

We always prioritise the interests of our clients and pride ourselves on asking the right questions of suppliers and contractors on behalf of our clients.

Each member of our team are specialists in their fields, offering clients the expertise, experience and knowledge they need to solve complex energy problems.

Together, we provide clients with a comprehensive and strategic approach to energy management not found elsewhere in the market today.
