Carbon Market - Energy and carbon markets
With rapidly escalating and volatile energy prices and the impending carbon market, specialist knowledge is now essential to handle the complexities of utility and carbon procurement and on-going contract management.
Energetics provides specialist advice to manage financial and operational risks as we move to a low carbon economy.
Market opportunities and risks
In an environment where energy and carbon markets are extremely volatile, new market opportunities and risks can appear rapidly. Proactive management of identified exposures through forward contract negotiation and other derivative markets can provide the certainty required to invest in the future.
Energetics holds an Australian Financial Services

Our team of staff includes experienced procurement managers, traders and market analysts who offer practical solutions to help businesses reduce costs and manage risks. Energetics can assist in all aspects of energy and carbon procurement, derivative markets, contract management and reporting.
Energetics provides a strategic energy procurement service throughout Australia and New Zealand to analyse market risks, price exposure and cost saving opportunities. We take a methodical approach to navigate regulations, market conditions, pricing models, analysis of market trends and access to the latest industry information.
Since deregulation of energy markets began, we have negotiated more than $5 billion worth of energy contracts on behalf of our clients, providing fast and accurate analysis and reporting and delivering significant cost savings.
As energy and carbon markets develop further, derivative products will be an economic and effective way to manage future uncertainty. Used properly, derivative products can be used to minimise volatility in future revenue and cost, and enable long term investment decisions to be made today.
Participating in forward contracts can be difficult, particularly where unknown political and technical developments may change the trading environment, for example, dealing with carbon pass-through costs. Understanding and building allowances into contracts is important in order to ensure they do not become invalid. Energetics has in-depth understanding of potential pitfalls in contract negotiation and can ensure that contract risk is minimised.
