Growth levers

Renewable energy, strategic alliances, and remunicipalization are familiar topics in the energy industry.

Predictive services

Predictive Analytics is currently one of the most important Big Data trends. 

It deals with nothing less than the prediction of service developments and is a continuous, integrative process. As the models applied are further improved and adapted, predictive analytics is becoming more precise. The use of Big data and advanced analytics are revolutionizing service-oriented businesses and leading to a drastic increase in system availability. Together with you, we’ll lay the groundwork for profitable growth in the service business.


Digital solutions

It’s neither contemporary nor profitable to view oneself as a mere energy provider.

In the age of Industry 4.0, companies that do so are missing an opportunity to morph into solutions and services providers. We can use our competence in this area, and make use of the H&Z Digitalization Check, to examine, for example, your potential digital developments. Or we’ll analyze the potential to harness Industry 4.0 for your processes and structures with the goal of deriving a suitable strategy.
