Digital@Utility 2023

What is the status of digital transformation in the energy industry?

  • With the help of Digital@Utility, energy suppliers can determine their digitalization and sustainability status, compare themselves with other companies and take concrete measures by identifying the potential for improvement.
  • Together with KearneyBDEW and VSE and based on data from over 100 energy suppliers, we provide an up-to-date picture and practical case studies from Enel S.p.A., E.ON, Statkraft, Gasnetz Hamburg, E.ON Grid Solutions, AS Sadales tīkls, and swb AG.
  • Energy suppliers of all sizes from all stages of the value chain from Germany, Switzerland, and 11 more countries worldwide took part in Digital@Utility 2023.
  • All participants received a individual feedback report based on their results. The generation of the reports was automated via Slidefab.
  • This year’s study highlights the potential synergies between digitalization and sustainability as a key to a climate-neutral future. In this context, almost every fifth participating company already defines the goal of becoming climate neutral in terms of direct emissions by 2030.

European Cluster Collaboration Platform (ECCP)

Strengthening the European economy trough collaboration

Following in very successful footsteps we are proud to announce that IMP³ROVE will lead the EU-funded project: ECCP, to continue the journey in becoming the European online hub for cluster stakeholders in Europe and beyond. Since 2015 the ECCP has acted as a platform for clusters to come together and support the European economy. We envisage an even stronger European economy through collaboration, increase in efficiency, productivity and sustainability, especially with the many promising SMEs that represent the backbone of the European economy. Thus, our vision and mission is to:

  • build capacity in clusters and community among them
  • provide data-driven information and feedback for cluster policy and
  • continuously improve the hub and strengthen and expand the community

In fulfilling these missions, we aim to boost SMEs’ internationalization and innovation efforts, create high-value jobs, whilst securing the SMEs’ position and increasing their resilience against external forces. Join us on our journey of facilitating inter-regional collaborations, and getting one step closer to making Europe a global best practice example.

Crisis-driven innovation

Efficient adaptation in and beyond the crisis

  • The manifold measures taken in our global fight against COVID-19 represent a turning point in recent history and the extent to which these measures affect the ways we live, work and play will likely have lasting effects on our society.
  • At the same time, many firms are confronted with scarce financial resources after tough economic times. Hence, what is needed is a game change plan for efficient adaptation to a ´new normal´.

The benefits of circular economy

Discover the advantages for your company

  • The importance of the circular economy is enormous when you consider our scarcity of resources. 13 tons of materials are processed each year per person.
  • A study demonstrates the benefits for companies that break linear material cycles by using all materials at the end of their life cycle as input for new production cycles: Companies that implement circular economy practices not only protect the environment, but also benefit economically in the long term.
  • Benchmark your company with our Corporate Sustainability Navigator Assessment to learn more about what corporate sustainability is about and to evaluate your sustainability performance that will result in long-term competitiveness.
  • Find more information on how companies can position themselves in a circular economy by following the link to Kearneys’ article “How do you move from laggard to leader in the circular economy?”
