Operational and Digital Transformation

Energy transition, digitalisation, and demographic changes are the main drivers for the operational and digital transformation of the energy sector. We support our clients across the entire energy value chain to transform business operations and digitalise processes as well as assets.

Managing the transition towards a sustainable future energy system, the entire industry is undergoing a massive transformation on many levels – from decarbonising assets and decentralising generation to digitalising underlying business models, processes and operations.

One constant remains, however, even within such a fast changing environment: achieving and maintaining operational and organisational excellence will always be a key success factor to thrive in any competitive landscape. If you are looking to take your operational and digital transformation to the next level, AFRY is your partner of choice. Together, we optimise your organisation across the entire value chain to unlock your full operational potential.

We have bundled all our assets, tools and expertise into a service portfolio with six distinct, but closely related building blocks aiming at a holistic approach towards operational excellence in all relevant dimensions:

Within each building block, we offer bespoke projects and solutions tailored to your individual organisational needs, your current organisational and digital maturity and your respective ambition levels. Besides, we have a portfolio of off-the-shelf digital solutions. This portfolio includes our Process Mining and RPA approaches as well as 3D Engineering & VR tools, Digital Twin solutions and our proprietary Balance+ and Performance Booster data analytics tools. We offer the implementation of these solutions in the form of stand-alone projects or as an integral part of a larger transformation project.
