With the energy transition, globalization and digital transformation, the energy sector is facing important changes.
Margins have been eroded by the reduction in consumption, the decline in the energy mix for fossil fuels and the end of subsidies for renewables. On a global scale, liberalization is shaking up historical players, while colossal, complex and uncertain projects (interconnections, smart grids, etc.) aim to transform infrastructures. The digital age has changed customer expectations and favoured new digital players at the expense of existing vendors. New technologies and data offer huge opportunities, from which only the most agile will benefit. To be sustainable, manufacturers must therefore become more efficient, more innovative, and more digital.

reduction in costs and lead times

Operational efficiency to secure investments and deadlines

Investments, which are highly exposed to drift, require proven project management methods and cost – quality – deadline control. Efficiency and reliability are also essential to existing installations in operation.
We support you to improve operational performance over the entire lifecycle: Design to Value/to Cost, technical convergence and planning (Set Based Concurrent Engineering, Lean Engineering), data and process control (Product/Asset Lifecycle Management, processes, Knowledge Management).

Becoming digital to reinvent customer relations

Until now focused on networks, energy companies have refocused on the customer, whose loyalty is based on uses and services: connected objects, advice….
To capture or create these new businesses the key is knowing the client, exploiting data and being agile. We help you to successfully switch to digital and innovate more effectively in an extended company.
