Nicki Hutley

Expertise : Economy

Nicki Hutley is a highly experienced economist, with expertise in macro- and microeconomic forecasting and analysis gained over three decades of practice in financial and investment markets and in economic consulting. Nicki is particularly interested in the intersection of economy, society and environment.

She has been involved in the economic analysis of climate change impacts, mitigation and adaptation since the 2008 Climate Change Review was undertaken by Ross Garnaut. She has extensive experience modelling the impacts of the CPRS, RET and Feed-in Tariff Schemes, undertaken over several years on behalf of Government, private sector, industry and peak body clients. Her work has evolved in more recent years to a focus on the costs and benefits of climate change issues including cyclone and flood mitigation, carbon capture and storage, residential and commercial energy efficiency, corporate financial risk, and regional economic transition risks.

After many years in the corporate world, including most recently as a senior partner with Deloitte Access Economics, Nicki is now an independent economist, a consultant to Social Outcomes, and an expert faculty member (economics) at SingularityU Australia.

Nicki is also a longstanding council member of the Economics Society of Australia (NSW), and a Board member for One Million Women and the Financy Women’s Index.

Nicki is a frequent commentator in the media and is a regular guest on both The Drum and The Project.
