Energy Industry

Navigating the new
energy landscape

The industry needs to look beyond its own horizons

The energy trilemma – ensuring sustainable, affordable, and reliable energy is one of the biggest challenges of our time. The need to achieve net-zero energy in every sector has led us to a new energy world, full of opportunities and challenges. More than ever, each industry is being asked to look beyond its own horizons. Sector coupling is not only the key to interconnect energy sectors, but also the enabler of sustainable and resilient business models. This will require companies to have the courage to think outside the box, look for new business opportunities, new partnerships and do investments.

Complex regulations, new technologies at different stages of maturity, new market entrants, and changing consumer behavior make it challenging to design robust business strategies. We help customers address today’s most pressing challenges.

Making your business strategy work for the future

Complex regulations, new technologies at different stages of maturity, new market entrants, and changing consumer behavior make it challenging to design robust business strategies. Understandably, decision makers are struggling to balance long-term decarbonization goals with short-term economic returns. At the same time, new business opportunities are growing extremely fast. It is more important than ever to seize the right opportunity with the right business strategy.

That’s where FEV Consulting comes into play: We help customers address today’s most pressing challenges. We work with clients from different industries and support them with rapidly scaling zero-carbon solutions and technologies and creating new business models, no matter where they are in their transformation.

  • Energy demand and supply (r)evolution

    Demand for green electricity, hydrogen and other renewable fuels will grow rapidly from 2030, leading to a profound transformation in the energy industry. However, the supply side is still lacking momentum for reasons such as regulatory uncertainty and restrained investment, putting regional targets for renewables at risk.

  • Complex and uncertain regulatory situation

    Navigating complex regulations will be a major challenge for the energy sector in the coming years. In particular, the lack of clarity about the evolution of policies in different regions and sectors is hampering the necessary investments. It is essential to keep up to date with the regulatory situation in the relevant sectors.

  • Digitalization in energy sector

    Leveraging data analytics, artificial intelligence, and the Internet of Things (IoT) is essential to optimize energy distribution, improve grid reliability, and increase energy efficiency. The industry is challenged to drive digitization and address the importance of cybersecurity.

  • Zero- or low carbon energy ecosystem

    For some energy ecosystems, renewable electricity will be the right source to meet the needs. In others, a high share of renewable liquid fuels will be the best option. Market participants need to be aware of the differences and develop appropriate business strategies.

  • Well-trained workforce is the basis of a succesful energy transition

    A successful energy transition will require a wide range of job profiles. Filling these jobs will demand the right approach to education and skills development. The industry, but also governments, have a crucial role to play in coordinating efforts to match the education sector's offerings to the expected needs of industry.

  • Infrastructure as one bottleneck

    There is insufficient infrastructure to connect renewable energy to markets, and an end-use sector that is not ready to switch to renewables. Forward-looking planning, modernization and expansion of supporting infrastructure on land and at sea are needed.

Sector coupling is the key for sustainable business

Energy transition matured heterogeneously among different sectors

While electricity generation is already predominantly renewable in many regions, heating and cooling, as well as mobility are lagging behind. This creates three major challenges:

  1. Approaching saturation in the electricity sector makes a further growth unmanageable
  2. Renewable energy is to a large extent electricity-based – thus, new energy conversion chains are required in other sectors.
  3. These other sectors offer great potential for load flexibility, which must be exploited for an intra-sectoral ecological optimum.

case study: Smart energy ecosystem to optimize renewables electricity management

Our experts supported a customer with the implementation of a smart energy ecosystem in insulated areas to promote EVs, reduce the area’s carbon footprint and optimize renewables production – using 2nd life batteries, EV smart charging and Vehicle-to-Grid technologies

  • Technology concept and system dimensioning
  • Technical validation of smart energy assets (vehicle-to-grid vehicles, active/reactive power management algorithms, etc.)
  • Ensuring smart grid’s capabilities, e.g.: distribution of additional renewable energy generated, balancing of energy, charging and discharging of assets, etc.
  • Coordination of all relevant stakeholders, e.g.:
    • electricity producer and distributor
    • building companies
    • energy management and monitoring start-ups
    • power converters suppliers
  • Training of BEVs’ users in order to maximize the projects’ benefits (when to plug, charge program, etc.)
