Oakley Greenwood

After graduation as a Chemical Engineer Jim spent 12 years in the Natural Gas Industry (AGL) holding several senior executive positions. Of relevance, after a stint in design and construction Jim held senior roles in Sales and Marketing where he developed major sales and public relations campaigns including producing numerous TV, radio and press adverts and pieces and conducting extensive market research. This work was principally aimed at measuring and changing very negative community views on the old “towns gas” as natural gas was progressively introduced, and fostering grass roots community support for the business in what was a highly competitive environment (with electricity). This was a very successful drive over several years winning two media awards at the time.He has since then held senior executive positions with Energy Developments Ltd running their Development and Construction Group, was CEO of Hunter Electricity, CEO of Consulting for Energetics Pty Ltd and was a founding Vice President in Australia of the Boston based consulting firm Charles River Associates which evolved to become Oakley Greenwood in Australia.Jim has worked across the energy and water industry. This has included water and energy pricing and economic regulation, demand side management, greenhouse gas mitigation and emission trading, extensive and complex modelling work as well as building generation plants, gas pipelines and electricity grid systems, CNG and LNG facilities, managing energy retail operations and has consulted widely to the demand side, particularly energy intensive industry. Jim has also undertaken large assignments internationally including spending more than two years restructuring the entire electricity industry of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and advising on the restructure of the Malaysian industry and associated incentives based regulation of the key monopoly assets of the country.In recent years Jim and his team have been assisting major miners in the development of their projects and in reducing costs - companies like Rio Tinto, Anglo Gold Ashanti, Rach, Aquila Resources and Vale Australia.
