TOBA are experts within the Electricity sector


Our team have worked with all elements of the NZ electricity network (Generation, Transmission and Distribution) and have extensive overseas experience to back that up.


We will collaborate with your team to explore exciting energy innovation opportunities that may be available on your project to meet your business objectives.

The services we offer:

(specific to the Energy sector)

  • Strategic advisory services - to help clients implement new technologies into their business:

  • Embedded generation (solar, batteries etc)

  • ​Exploring all market opportunities to deliver better returns on investment (demand response, frequency support, interruptible load). 

The opportunities are endless

We can help scope and explore the opportunities within your portfolio of buildings or infrastructure. Potential project objectives and opportunities that may be available to you include:


Reduce capex costs

  • Explore embedded generation opportunities (solar, batteries etc) and interrogate smart network design to potentially reduce the required HV infrastructure sizes.


Reduce opex costs

  • Installation of solar solutions either via long term Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) or through self-funding.

  • Electricity pricing that is cost neutral or cheaper than existing energy contracts. This also reduces exposure to future electricity pricing increases.


Improve Resilience

  • Embedded generation and energy storage may be solutions to ensure the frequency and duration of electrical outages be kept to a minimum.

The opportunities are endless.

Sustainability/environmental objectives​​


  • Off-set greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions

  • Align with Government objectives to reduce GHG emissions and achieve 100% renewable electricity supply.

  • Alignment with Greenstar and Living Building standards.

Ways the project can generate revenue


  • Utilisation of battery storage for demand response or alternative market opportunities. ​

  • Desire for a unique industry leading, cutting edge project​

Need funding?


Following the initial scoping study, our team has the experience and contacts within the industry to explore the design, integration, funding (financing if required) and delivery of any applicable solution.
