Mastering the Energy Transition with Industry Experience and Implementation Expertise
consistency helps companies take advantage of current and future challenges – by using them as opportunities to prepare for ever-changing market conditions.
We consult on strategy development, reliably accompany teams and departments through the transformation process, empower employees and executives, and efficiently implement demanding operational tasks.
With profound industry expertise and advanced method- and implementation competence in classic as well as agile project management, we create powerful solutions for our clients. This includes energy portfolio management, the introduction of digital technologies and intelligent measuring systems, business process optimisation, as well as the restructuring and harmonisation of complex IT system landscapes – especially in the SAP environment.
Smart Energy Supply
Following decades of predictable technological development and constant growth in largely regulated markets, German and European utility companies (EVU) are undergoing a paradigm shift with the ongoing energy transition. Decentralised power generation from renewable energies and power-heat coupling is increasingly supplementing and even replacing central large-scale plants. This change requires correspondingly flexible digitally controlled storage and distribution solutions.
Energy Transition, Deregulation and Digitisation as Key Drivers
Non-industry companies and start-ups are entering the energy market. They serve growing customer expectations with attractive conditions, transparent processes, and high-performance digital services. Shifts in the competitive structure and increasing price sensitivity is putting the industry under a lot of pressure to change – which many providers are not expected to overcome.
Formerly large monolithic corporations with enormous economies of scale have to transform themselves into highly efficient and customer-oriented providers in competitive environments in a short time because traditional and planning-proof sources of revenue from the production of fossil fuels are becoming less important. Therefore, formerly monolithic corporations with enormous economies of scale have to quickly transform themselves into highly efficient and customer-oriented providers capable of surviving this competitive environment.
Energy Markets are Developing Dynamically
Enhanced process efficiency in production, distribution, sales, billing and customer service is necessary for survival and in itself demanding enough. On top of that, the market is dynamically changing with numerous parallel developments and innovations. With its complex generation structure, today Germany is a living laboratory for the development of intelligently networked solutions. Enormous opportunities arise for companies that tackle these challenges decisively and powerfully. Pioneers in energy of the future, offer their customers reliable supply from resource-conserving and sustainable sources – at attractive conditions.
Energy Industry Challenges
- Digitisation of transport and distribution networks via smart grids
- Digital billing and capacity management solutions via smart metering
- E-mobility as an exponentially growing trans-sectoral consumer and storage market
- Integrated energy from decentralised power generation, heating and cooling requirements of the real estate industry, and e-mobility
- Virtual power plants that keep electricity grids stable even under high consumption fluctuations
- Optimisation of energy production and consumption as well as the marketing of excess capacity
- Disruptive potential and needs arising from Industry 4.0, Internet of Things, Big Data and Business Analytics
- Connected and innovative sales with customer-centric and digital business models
Transformation Requires Cultural Change
In order to successfully manage their highly complex topics, energy providers are not only facing enormous technological advances – above all, they require fundamental cultural change. New forms of collaboration, lean management processes, motivational leadership, and empowerment are indispensable. They make rigid processes more flexible, help to overcome unnecessary hierarchies and silos, and establish efficient agile forms of work.
