Intelligent energy supply and digitalisation as central drivers
After decades of predictable technological development and steady growth in largely still regulated markets, German and European energy supply companies are experiencing a paradigm shift with the ongoing energy turnaround. Decentralized power generation from renewable energies increasingly supplements or replaces centralized large-scale plants and correspondingly requires flexible, digitally controlled storage concepts and distribution solutions. With its multi-layered generation structure, Germany is now a real laboratory for the development of intelligently networked solutions.
Companies from outside the industry and start-ups are pushing into the energy market and serving customers with attractive conditions, transparent processes, high-performance and digital services. The changed competitive structure and increasing price sensitivity on the market are putting the industry under increasing pressure to change, which not all providers will survive in the foreseeable future. Companies that used to benefit greatly from economies of scale must now, more than ever, move closer to the customer and offer individual solutions.
E-mobility is becoming more important every day and fossil fuels will soon be a thing of the past. Even if the necessary improvements in process efficiency in energy production, distribution, sales, billing and customer service are in themselves demanding enough, the market continues to develop dynamically and unpredictably with numerous parallel developments and innovations.
With profound industry expertise, methodological reliability and implementation competence in both classic and agile project management, we create powerful solutions. These include the introduction of digital technologies and intelligent metering systems, energy portfolio management, restructuring and harmonization of complex IT system landscapes, especially in the SAP environment, as well as business process optimization in production, distribution, sales, billing and customer service.
To successfully manage their highly complex issues, energy suppliers are not only facing enormous technological changes, but above all need a fundamental cultural change. New forms of cooperation, lean management processes and the ability to organize oneself are essential to make rigid process flows more flexible, overcome unnecessary hierarchies and silo thinking and establish efficient agile forms of work.
