Digitalization

The FfE’s efforts are dedicated to addressing the challenges posed by the digital transformation in the energy sector. Our focus includes designing the future digital energy system, assessing the impact of technologies like artificial intelligence, exploring new business models, and evaluating the adaptability of German regulations. We emphasize standardization and consistent data collection to enhance energy industry processes. Digitalization is crucial for a successful energy transition, fostering innovative solutions and digital business models.

  • Strategy and innovation: Our customized workshops help you generate ideas for new business models, products, and technologies. We collaborate with you to develop strategies for practical implementation in the energy market.
  • From idea to product: We guide and support you in transforming ideas into concrete products. Our services cover market potential analysis, business model development, technical implementation (use cases), addressing regulatory hurdles and stakeholder engagement, all the way to prototype development.
  • Software development: Our team of software developers and AI experts assists you in analyzing large datasets, conceptualizing data monetization strategies, and developing prototypes, minimum viable products (MVPs), or proof of concepts (PoCs). We cover everything from processes to implementation.
  • Consulting: We offer comprehensive advice on all aspects of the digital energy industry, including smart meters, (home) energy management, market communication, innovative business models and technologies, and partnership networking.

With FfE’s approach of merging current research findings with services, we provide unparalleled support on your journey to transforming the energy system. Research creates knowledge and knowledge creates practice.
