FTI Consulting's Power & Utilities practice has a global reach, with experts providing services to power and utility clients across all markets, jurisdictions and countries around the world.
Our Geographic Footprint
FTI Consulting's Power & Utilities clients involved in the production, transmission, distribution and trading of electric power in North and South America face a range of strategic, financial, reputational, customer and regulatory challenges, including market oversupply driven by flat demand; the pricing of resources receiving subsidies in U.S. capacity markets; and highly variable regulatory environments in many South American countries. Effectively overcoming these challenges requires comprehensive knowledge of the industry — expertise that FTI Consulting brings to bear through its team of power and utility experts and their thoughtful analyses. Our professionals have extensive experience in addressing structural changes in the power industry, conflicting regulatory frameworks and pervasive contractual disputes, and in maximizing value for stakeholders. In addition, we provide strategic communications services across all disciplines to build, preserve and protect enterprise value.
Asia Pacific and Australia
The Asia Pacific region is expected to see significant growth over the next decade. Although they retain a significant reliance on fossil fuels, companies operating in the region must address issues stemming from diversifying away from fossil fuels, as well as grid security issues, that will drive new policy and regulatory objectives.
The Australian market has long been dominated by an aging, inefficient, coal-fired generation fleet. Falling renewables costs, rising LNG prices and aggressive emission-reduction targets are driving a changing landscape that power and utility clients must navigate through in coming decades.
FTI Consulting’s Power & Utilities team provides a wide array of advisory services that address the strategic, financial, operational, technical, reputational, regulatory and capital needs of companies involved in the Australian power and utility sector.
Europe, the Middle East and Africa
Companies involved in the production, distribution, transmission, retailing and trading of electric power in Europe face numerous challenges: energy transition, regulatory changes in transmission and distribution, wholesale market reforms, country action plans for achieving future “zero emissions” targets, uncertainty around carbon pricing under the EU emissions trading system (ETS) and increasing energy system complexity. In particular, the energy transition is causing several important trends, including significant growth in renewables and, within that, subsidy-free models; the increasing importance of new technologies such as energy storage; and the emergence of new demand and competitors from the electrification of transport and heat. FTI Consulting’s Power & Utilities team provides a wide array of advisory services that address the strategic, financial, operational, technical, reputational, regulatory and capital needs of companies involved in the power and utility sector — including nuclear, thermal, solar, onshore and offshore wind, among other emerging low-carbon clean technologies, as well as energy storage and hydrogen. We provide a one-stop solution to the needs of power and utility companies, their investors and other parties of interest.
