In recent years, numerous energy utilities have begun to optimize their business processes, diversify their revenue base and seek new service areas. Transformation is in full swing.

With the energy turnaround and liberalisation of the Swiss energy market, the framework conditions along the entire energy value chain are being redefined.

Energy suppliers are forced to question and reorient their traditional business models. New strategies and services, portfolio adjustments, the expansion of the core business and appropriate cooperation are essential measures to transform the pure energy supplier into a successful service provider. The aim is to align value creation more closely with customer benefit and to achieve both cost reductions and increased efficiency through optimised business processes. At the same time, security of supply must be guaranteed at all times.


Energy companies should anticipate and actively address changing demands in times of change. AWK advises you comprehensively from strategy development to operationalisation. To this end, we support you in the provision and optimization of your operational model with regard to organization, business processes and your ICT landscape. Examples include the creation and implementation of a digitization strategy, the development of new "smart" business models or the conception and implementation of smart metering.

How we can assist you:

As a long-established partner of the Swiss energy industry, AWK advises energy service providers on strategic, operational and technical issues. In the interaction of all your business areas, we help you to strengthen your market position with innovative and integrative solutions. You benefit from the technical, methodological and technological know-how of our consultants.


Depending on your specific requirements, you can consult our consultants as experts or project managers. By supporting your project managers on site, we can respond even more directly to your needs and thus maximize the benefits achieved.
