Public transport company Transdev aims to transition into 100% electrical transportation. Transdev Nederland knows: the energy transition in the Netherlands is complex. There are many parties involved, each with its own role and perspective. The entire energy chain needs to come together to speed up electrification nation-wide. What can Transdev do about this? The company decides to take the lead and asks us to bring the entire energy chain to the table to find solutions together.
Round table conversation with key players
We help Transdev to get key players at the table: large energy suppliers, energy transporters, as well as heavy energy users. It leads to a round table conversation with board members of energy supplier Vattenfal, transport and solution providers Alliander, Firan, and Helix. Plus the heavy users Ahold Delhaize, BASF and Transdev Nederland itself.
Beforehand, we interview each participant 1-on-1, to understand everyone's electrification challenges and ambitions. We use this to prepare a productive round table meeting. In the meeting, we identify the biggest challenges and explore possible solutions. Next, we map all necessary actions and organize a follow-up session.
New connections and concrete actions
The result? In one fruitful morning session, we established new connections. It's the start of a longterm cooperation across the energy chain. It's what we call: a coalition for change. The group had a follow-up session to report back on their progress on the four solutions and concrete actions. These sessions generated lots of positivity. An energy boost to the electrification in the Netherlands. "
The chairs from Been Management Consulting provided an interesting and smooth discussion, and managed to get us moving.
