What can we do for you?

Would you like to contribute actively to shaping the energy transition, launch pilot projects, analyse trends or develop new business models? We offer public

and private sector clients 100 percent energy transition as a one-stop solution – competent, innovative and practical.

Strategy and consulting

The energy transition presents significant challenges to business and politics. Established business models and industries are in upheaval; new markets are emerging, and there are calls for a framework that creates space for innovation. This is why we advise public and private sector clients in the development and implementation of regional, national and international strategies. In this, we build on our long-standing experience in all relevant fields of action within the energy transition.

Studies and analyses

We get to the bottom of things, whether in our own studies and analyses, in networking with clients, experts and stakeholders, or in our alliances with research institutions. The portfolio extends from basic research to surveys and reports on our projects, to strategy papers and future scenarios. In this way, we build a foundation for more advanced projects that address ideas from studies and analyses, and put them into practice.

Project development

We develop and manage projects on behalf of our clients, for instance in the area of energy-efficient building and refurbishment or the promotion of energy efficiency in industry und trade. The projects are frequently seen as role models on the market. This is because we use them to demonstrate how the energy transition can succeed in a practical setting. We trust in high quality, promote knowledge networks and use the experience acquired to develop more advanced solutions and strategies.

Market development

Many things are technically feasible. But what is actually purposeful in the interests of the energy transition? Which opportunities does the market provide? How can a market be made accessible for future-oriented technologies? To answer these questions, we cooperate with our clients and partners to develop quality standards that we establish in a practical setting. In doing so, we create transparency, communicate knowledge among the key actors and foster the development of suitable conditions. We therefore bring growth to the markets and progress in the energy transition.

Networks

We initiate, design and moderate a variety of dialogue formats at the interface between business and politics, including congresses, expert workshops and conferences, and even political networking on an EU, federal or state level. Many of the dialogue formats are initiated as part of larger projects and involve the development of joint strategies. Here we can build on our cross-sectoral network that has matured over many years.

Communication

The energy transition is also a communicative challenge. There are good ideas and approaches in many areas. But how can they be communicated to buyers in private households, companies and municipalities? How can they become established in trade and consulting? We develop and manage communication platforms, campaigns, competitions and PR in order to achieve precisely these objectives. After all, it is demand that will ultimately prove decisive, not supply.

Grid Flex Study

In its “Grid Flex Study", dena is investigating how storage facilities can be used to increase flexibility in the electricity grid. The aim is to identify operating models for storage facilities that are economically viable and which reduce the load on the electricity grid.

Overview

  • Project start: February 2016
  • Study duration: 12 months (until the end of January 2017)
  • The partners in the study are 23 companies from various industries (grid operators, energy providers, plant engineers and providers of storage facility solutions)

Grid Study I and II

With the help of Grid Studies I and II, dena presents the measures which will allow the German electricity grid to meet the challenges of the future: through targeted grid expansion and at the same time optimising the existing energy infrastructure.

Overview

  • Grid Study I: released in February 2005
  • Grid Study I: 17 partners from the industry (grid and installation operators as well as their associations) as well as the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB)
  • Grid Study II: released in November 2010
  • Grid Study II: 14 partners from the industry (grid and installation operators as well as their associations) as well as the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB)

Pilot Project DSM Bavaria

In collaboration with Bavarian companies and the Bavarian state government, dena is conducting a flagship project for the analysis and establishment of demand side management potential.

Overview

  • Project duration: 11/2013 – 6/2016
  • Involved DSM marketers: 4
  • Companies personally contacted: 180
  • Companies whose DSM potential was analysed: 58
  • Companies that received comprehensive advice during marketing: 10
  • Industries which the companies analysed can be categorised under: > 11
