Project characteristics and examples

Projects delivered by ENEA do vary, but can be characterised as follows:

  • ENEA works for all energy players, from global companies to SME’s: Utilities, OEMs, Industrial Energy Consumers, Investors, Public Authorities, Start-ups
  • ENEA works in all the energy transition fields: renewable distributed generation, energy storage, hydrogen, energy efficiency, green gas and waste management, carbon capture and storage, energy access, etc.
  • Projects are carried out in a team, and typically last three months
  • Projects are often carried out from the Melbourne office (CBD), with regular client interactions. Projects can also be partly carried out from our clients’ offices
  • Depending on their objectives, projects will entail tasks of varying nature: project management, literature review, market and strategy analysis, cost-benefit analysis, data analytics, technology evaluation, workshop organisation and strategy recommendations
  • All projects provide a real exposure to diversity of current energy challenges

Examples of projects recently carried out includes:

  • Smart technology market scan: The Client was looking to gain a better understanding of the products available in two distinct markets, to inform a potential acquisition. The project team successfully performed a rather exhaustive market scan of available technologies & providers under a very tight timeline. Taking a comparative analysis approach, the team was able to justify the more competent providers in the market with more advanced and comprehensive solution offerings, highlighting those that were most relevant to the client’s appetite. To better inform the client’s decision making, market size forecasts were also provided.
  • Feasibility and business case assessments for a critical electricity infrastructure project: ENEA’s role was to help prepare a draft report on the project’s feasibility by engaging with technical, legal, environmental, economic and stakeholder subject matter experts, as part of one of the first stages of the project $20m feasibility study. Combined efforts of numerous committed team-members were required to successfully deliver the report under tight deadlines.
  • Long Run Marginal Cost (LRMC) computation for distribution network pricing: ENEA’s role in this project was to help assess the LRMC of 3 Victorian distribution networks. The LRMC is an economic metric used for determining the pricing of lumpy infrastructure (electricity network in our case). In Australia, the regulator (AER) mandates that network tariffs be based on LRMC. The project team proposed a more robust and more granular methodology than current practices, lifting the Australian standards on the matter. If approved by the regulator and implemented by the distribution network, it may pave the way for targeted network pricing, to enable battery storage and electric vehicle incentive programs, or targeted demand response schemes.
