Company Description

We help the world see new possibilities and inspire change for better tomorrows. Our analytic solutions bridge content, data, and analytics to help business, people, and society become stronger, more resilient, and sustainable.

 

About Us:

 

In September 2021, PowerAdvocate became part of Wood Mackenzie. The two businesses have come together, aligning our products, energy data, and technology to meet our customers’ rapidly changing and expanding needs. PowerAdvocate is moving to use the Wood Mackenzie name and brand going forward as we combine our teams and product sets.

By bringing together Wood Mackenzie’s extensive coverage of energy and natural resources with PowerAdvocate’s unique cost and supply chain intelligence, we’re able to provide a greater breadth and depth of market-leading analysis, data, and insight.

We are excited for the future direction of the company and helping to drive forward the energy transition.  Visit woodmac.com to find out more.

Wood Mackenzie Supply Chain, formerly PowerAdvocate, delivers data and insights that make energy and natural resource companies more effective and resilient contributors to the global economy. We do that by providing our customers the right data in the right solution to help them reduce costs, manage risks, and accelerate the transition to renewable energy. At our center sit proprietary data sets and leading data science that we combine with our technology to solve our customers’ most complex business problems. 

We are also a values-led company. We care for each other. We value diversity, equity, and inclusion. We recognize that our individual differences make us stronger.  We are confident and driven, yet practical and humble. We help each other improve with direct, respectful feedback, and we encourage different viewpoints and trust in best intentions.
