Public utility companies
Municipal utilities play an important role in the energy industry in their capacity as local service providers. What makes them special is that they not only ensure the supply of electricity, gas and water, but are also in close contact with local politicians and the general public. We advise municipal utilities on strategic alignment, organisational development and cooperation, transformation and investment decisions.
Large utility companies
Alongside municipal utilities, we also count major international energy groups among our clients. We assist them in areas such as market entry strategies, new business models, M&A activities and digitisation.
Transmission systems and distribution grids make up the backbone of the energy industry. In the coming years, they will face enormous investment challenges (e.g. expansion of the electricity grid) and technological transformations (e.g. natural gas). Thanks to our technical background, we are able to support network operators with everything from asset management strategies and organisational changes to supply chain optimisation, business modelling, investment strategies and partnership opportunities.
Water supply companies / Wastewater disposal companies
Our consulting services for companies in the water and wastewater industry focus on sustainable solutions: we develop future-proof strategies, clear structures and efficient processes that ensure cost-effective and safe drinking water supply and wastewater disposal. We work with our clients to factor into our considerations and strategies the potential consequences of climate change, the challenges posed by major investments in resilient infrastructures and the shortage of skilled workers, as well as the opportunities presented by digitisation and artificial intelligence.
The energy transition will require an unprecedented amount of capital (transitions in electricity, heating, mobility and energy efficiency). This demands restructuring and portfolio optimisation, as well as investors such as insurance groups, infrastructure funds and private equities. In addition to providing strategic advice, we also support buyers and sellers during the sale or purchase process with commercial, technical, organisational and ESG due diligence. We are also the lead advisor for vertical and horizontal integrations.
International financial institutions
Our work supports initiatives and projects in international development cooperation and by extension contributes to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Our projects cover the entire project development cycle, from conceptualisation to supporting measures during implementation and operation. The first step is to carry out market and demand analyses, together with macroeconomic and individual economic assessments of infrastructure projects. We build on this by developing financial strategies to promote investments in sustainable energy, water supply and similar projects. We support project sponsors with their organisation and processes so that they can derive long-term benefits from the sustainable management of their facilities.
Energy intensive industries
Consultancy in the energy industry plays a crucial role in supporting energy-intensive companies on their journey to carbon-neutral production. We provide end-to-end consultancy services which, alongside technical solution options, also take into account the regulatory framework and developments in the energy markets and, on this basis, develop optimal solutions based on cost avoidance curves. We are a partner in the transformation towards a sustainable energy supply and future competitiveness, which means we are also helping to achieve international climate protection targets.
Shape the future of energy with us
Together with our clients, we are committed to driving the energy transition. Joining FMC offers you the chance to make a meaningful impact in tackling one of the greatest challenges of our time.
