Acting Manager Market Developments Tarong Energy Corporation Limited.

Hi. I work in the Marketing and Trading Department for Tarong Energy which is an electricity company. My particular section is responsible for preparing price and volume forecasts, and for analysing and evaluating a variety of projects. Our information is used in Risk Management, Pricing and Trading.

There are three people with maths degrees here which indicates the importance of the skills. Mathematics certainly develops analytic and problem solving abilities which are invaluable in application to many "real" situations.

We use a lot of computer tools to produce results, but having an understanding of maths means that we can better control the accuracy of these models and thus make better decisions.
