Commodities, Energy and Utilities


The German and European utility industry is currently undergoing a phase of dynamic and drastic changes


  • Utilities industry
  • Liberalization
  • Unbundling
  • Anreizregulierung
  • EU internal market directives
  • Profitability
  • Asset Management
  • Asset Optimization

If, in the past, the utilities industry turned out to be a less dynamic branch with minimal pressure to change in terms of market participants and legal framework conditions, this has basically changed in recent years. Initially triggered by EU internal market directives, this resulted in following years in the opening of the electricity and gas markets in Germany through the implementation of the law to reform energy management legislation and the law amending the law to reform energy management legislation.


Reinforced by the international financial and economic crisis, the market and competition conditions created by the liberalization of energy markets demand both the continuous adjustment of the energy supply companies (ESC) to match the current competitive and regulatory situation as well as anticipatory action by the company with respect to future developments. Incentive regulation and renewable energy are examples of this. ESCs were able to significantly influence the effect of the incentive regulation through forward planning and timely adequate response.
