Having spent over a decade at the forefront of the transformation in the Energy sector, Andrew brings a deep understanding of commercial, policy, regulatory, and economic perspectives to Oliver Wyman’s Energy practice.
He has led a wide variety of projects in the industry, spanning growth strategies, clean energy strategies, and new market entries, to commercial due diligences and leadership transition.
Andrew’s work in the Energy Transition first began in the UK Government, where he led teams in developing policy in smart grids and the renewable integration. “This got me involved with what were then poorly understood technology areas like electric vehicle charging, demand-side response and electricity storage,” he notes.
Later, he became a founding member of a clean-tech start-up in the demand-side response space. There, he helped to develop a new technology platform to shift electricity demand of customers, and even set up their own B2B electricity supply business. “It’s been a fascinating journey to see how these early-stage technologies and ideas have developed over time to now be mainstream and essential parts of our energy transition,” he notes.
Throughout his career, Andrew has witnessed major shifts in business models and technologies in the energy space. “Beyond the move to renewables and increased electrification, the very structure of the industry has changed with utility players moving away from an all-purpose approach to focus on more specific areas,” he says. “At the same time there has been an influx of small challenger players and new technology start-ups, and we are just starting to see the mass transition of major oil and gas players into clean energy, which will continue over the next 10 years.”
Outside of the London office, Andrew is a creative soul who loves to paint, write, and make music, now largely applying his talents to drawing cartoons for his daughter to color in. He holds a BA in Philosophy and Economics and a MSc in Public Policy from University College London.
