A Compelling Approach

What are the implications for a sector subject to constant change in market, regulatory and policy development? The ability to cope with, respond to and make the most of this change is critical. This is how we have been helping regulators, utilities, oil and gas producers, investors, and trading companies in France, Germany, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, the UK and elsewhere. They have relied on our depth of industry experience, quality of thinking, innovation and robustness of argument to manage change for more than three decades. The Oxera wholesale electricity model is now the established market model. Our analysis of wholesale and retail markets, energy trading and network regulation is respected sector-wide, and our expertise is often sought by both sides in the same dispute.
