Aurora Energy Rese­arch

Aurora Energy Rese­arch is a dyna­mic and fast-grow­ing energy con­sult­ing and ana­lyt­ics com­pany. We are con­trib­ut­ing to the glo­bal energy trans­ition through ana­lysis, tools and data, and inform the decisi­ons of most major European energy mar­ket par­ti­cipants. Our sub­scrip­tion busi­ness pro­vi­des data and intel­li­gence on energy mar­ket dynam­ics to lead­ing pri­vate and pub­lic-sec­tor cli­ents; our con­sult­ing team sup­ports our cli­ents’ long-term stra­tegic and invest­ment decisi­ons. We cover all key energy com­mod­it­ies, with par­tic­u­lar focus on the power sec­tor and low-car­bon energy trans­form­a­tion.

Aurora was foun­ded in 2013 by a group of Uni­ver­sity of Oxford aca­dem­ics on the pre­mise that tech­no­lo­gical pro­gress and policy inter­ven­tions make energy mar­kets increas­ingly com­plex. Our mis­sion is to pro­vide rig­or­ous, soph­ist­ic­ated ana­lysis and energy mar­ket mod­el­ling to address this increas­ing mar­ket com­plex­ity. Aurora is now a thriv­ing, rap­idly grow­ing com­pany of over 180 staff with offices in Oxford, Ber­lin and Syd­ney. We cur­rently serve 300 of Europe’s most influ­en­tial energy sec­tor par­ti­cipants, includ­ing util­it­ies, inves­tors and gov­ern­ments, and expect to con­tinue to grow rap­idly, adding new coun­tries and SaaS pro­ducts to our port­fo­lio.
