The Energy Transition.
100 % renewable energy.
A 100% sustainable energy supply. Perhaps the number 1 challenge of the century. Because we will only succeed in reducing the emission of greenhouse gases if we make our energy supply sustainable. If we want to achieve international and national climate targets, we will have to get moving. How do we tackle this together?
The 5 challenges of the energy transition
Your livelihood is under pressure
Customers understand their impact. Their energy demand is changing too. From linear to circular and from centralized to decentralized. How do you respond to this changing demand? How can you renew your supply and make it more flexible? And fast.
You need new technological skills
The energy transition requires knowledge of new technologies. It requires more staff with the right skills. And that is exactly what is scarce. How do you become an attractive employer (again)? How will being a purpose-driven organization help you achieve that?
Energy supply chain even more complex
There has always been a great deal of dependence between all nodes and players in the energy supply chain. Now, there is a new player in town: the customer. With solar panels and wind turbines your customer is also a producer. How can improve the cooperation between all these players - from producer to end user? How can you create a responsive supply chain?
Developments are happening fast
The energy market is changing rapidly. Legislation is changing. New competitors are emerging. Technological developments are happening fast. How do you deal with these new uncertainties and risks? How do you become flexible and agile?
The returns on your investments are uncertain
Investments are needed to generate and store energy from the sun, water and wind. Capital-intensive investments in infrastructure and technology. But: the energy price is unpredictable. This puts pressure on profitability models. How can you reduce costs and increase output? How do you get meaningful analyses and smart asset management?
Taking action on the energy transition. It can be done.
Lead the way
Increase your competitiveness and be a leader in the transition. It pays off.

Where are you in the transition?
Your business model is threatened with extinction
Does this sound familiar? There is a lot of public discussion about your sector and your company. All your 'green' initiatives are seen as greenwashing. Finding qualified personnel is becoming increasingly difficult. The pride you once had is slowly fading away. Moreover, your market is shrinking in the medium term, In fact, your turnover is already declining. What's going to be your unique market position?
Start by choosing the right strategy. This also includes choosing what you are not going to do (anymore). We use scenario planning to determine the strategy and involve the right internal and external stakeholders. We then translate the strategy into a concrete roadmap for the coming years and months. Setting clear goals is key.
How sustainable is your company and where do you want to go? We measure this with a Business Impact Assessment (BIA). We start with a baseline measurement and make visible what the improvement potential is.
Are you ready to execute the strategy? We help you to choose the right projects, make the right investment decisions in line with the strategy and select the right partners. What will you do yourself and what will you outsource? We'll help you with that too.
Is the strategic governance in order? We also help you to translate the strategy into the right governance, set up an appropriate remuneration structure and measurement systems. This certainly includes monitoring environmental, social and economic impact.
You're part of sustainable energy supply, but can't keep up with demand
Do you recognize this? You are experiencing fierce competition and pressure on costs, whilst growing very fast too. It's a sign that your market is maturing. In the meanwhile, finding and keeping good people is hard. You're spending most of your time addressing problems. Here. Now. But you need to focus on the long term too. Your company is essential in the energy transition. Can you cope on your own? Or can you achieve more with partners?
We'll start with your day-to-day operations. Sustainable performance management and smart asset management. This brings structure and gives the organization some space. Space to look further ahead and work on the energy transition.
Next, focus on becoming a more attractive employer by better communicating your purpose. What is your strategy? Do your employees and candidates know what you stand for? We help you define and communicate that all-important dot on the horizon.
Also, we bring in the Business Impact Assessment (BIA). How sustainable is your company now and where do you want to be? We'll show the potential for improvement on social, economic, and environmental impact. The outcome is a step-by-step plan for to becoming more sustainable. This also provides a good starting point when exploring opportunities with partners in the value chain. How about aspiring a B Corp status, adhering to the highest environmental and social standards?
You're working on a project in the heart of the energy transition
Can you identify with this? Your project is right at the heart of the energy transition. You're project is making a positive impact. But you're also aware that the energy transition is a systemic change. We have to do it together and all parties involved have to stay on board. How do you ensure fruitful cooperation?
We help you to determine the shared value of your project and its organization. We'll help you find the right partners. Next, we help to get everyone on the same page. Because everyone has different interests. Together, we determine your common ground as well as your desired destination. We'll make sure you reach your common goals. It's our day-to-day work as project and program managers.
The SDGs in energy transition
Our own dot on the horizon is the supply of affordable, reliable and sustainable energy for everyone. We see all parties involved as part of a system. We want to bring these parties together, to explore how we can increase the value of energy. That goes beyond thinking in terms of costs and revenues alone.
In doing so, we're guided by a very clear compass: the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. Our guiding principle in the mission to help the energy sector achieve this sustainable future.
