We support clients with developing offshore wind and other renewables across Australia, New Zealand and the Asia Pacific region. We know all the components of offshore wind project development from concept to financial close.

Consulting Services

We advise developers, investors, regulators and governments on all aspects of offshore wind farm development, including strategy, market understanding, regulatory environment,
and due diligence.

Leading transformation

Offshore Wind Australia and New Zealand

Australia is going through a major shift in how electricity is made and used. In the next 20 years, old power resources will be replaced with cheaper renewable options. To keep the system running well, we need energy storage and other types of power sources.

This creates opportunities for people to use low-carbon electricity for transport, businesses, houses, or anywhere else – instead of using fuel like oil or gas.

In New Zealand, energy demand is predicted to rise significantly with electrification of the economy. The Government targets 100% renewable electricity generation by 2030 and net-zero by 2050.

Offshore wind has the potential to be a game-changer for Australia and New Zealand – delivering significant clean energy and jobs in the right place and at the right time.

Fast-paced transition

Offshore Wind
Farm Development

Climate change, new technologies, ageing coal-based power stations, economics, governmental policies, energy security, and consumer preferences are all pushing us forward rapidly.

As the world moves closer to a zero-emission future, countries that have plentiful, inexpensive renewable energy sources will benefit.

Both Australia and New Zealand are ideally placed to be amongst those countries, with the ability to export energy, use it for domestic or industrial production, or in digital industries that are energy intensive.

Experienced offshore

Renewable Energy Consultants

We provide unparalleled region-specific expertise in establishing successful offshore wind projects in Australia, New Zealand and Asia Pacific. This is particularly valuable for a merit-based seabed licensing model.

We are a growing consultancy with a strong network of trusted relationships across Australia, New Zealand, Asia Pacific, and Europe. This allows us the flexibility to scale-up where necessary. All our consultants are overseen by our founding partners who have over 30 years of offshore wind experience between them.
