KPMG can help energy organisations respond to the challenges facing the power and utilities sector, globally and domestically.

KPMG can help energy organisations respond to challenges in their sector.

The Australian Power & Utilities sectors are facing an unprecedented period of transformation with more anticipated. These sectors are operating in an environment where resources are becoming scarcer due to a growing population, urban densification and climate change customers face increasing cost of living pressure whilst having higher expectations of utilities and a range of different technologies is maturing, converging and forming the next wave to disrupt the sector.
