Energy & resources

The SW Energy & Resources experts are strategic advisors and accountants for operators of all sizes across the mining, resources, renewable energy, electricity and water sectors. A major global player, Australia’s resources sector is well established and its energy sector is experiencing fast-paced change.

As businesses adapt to changes in global commodities markets, technological transformation and the stablishment of alternative energy sources, companies are seeking out advisors with solid industry experience who can provide cutting-edge business advice and solutions to meet their ever-changing needs. 

International demand for coal, iron ore and natural gas, coupled with major renewables and hydrogen operators across the country ensures Australia is well placed to maintain its coveted global position. However investor pressure and international reporting requirements on ESG and sustainability has and will continue to expand, putting pressure on mining and energy companies to adjust infrastructure and reporting capabilities.

Working closely with clients and investors across a broad range of energy and resources sectors, the SW team is highly experienced and regarded across the sector, providing integrated accounting, audit, advisory and tax services for both domestic and international companies.

Our team has deep experience and connections across the industry, remaining at the forefront of changes and consistently work to provide you with value-add opportunities to improve efficiencies, financial visibility, attract project finance and much more.
