Change Management

The energy industry has seen substantial change over the past 20 years, resulting in wide-scale privatisation, downsizing and restructuring into new commercial entities. In many parts of the world these processes are still ongoing, and new commercial or public sector entities are being set up. In addition, regulatory organisations and government departments continue to evolve their organisations to fit commercial or corporatized models. For change management to be a success it is also important to understand the contextual issues of the industry in each country, for example, the overall size and shape of the sector, cultural and social factors (such as local labour and working practices), and the role electricity plays in overall national economic policy.

Our Key Strengths
PPA Energy's approach is substantially different from general management consulting firms. As a niche player we have a specific sector focus, and our team is made up of real specialists, who either have extensive consulting experience, or have themselves held Director and General Manager level positions in major utilities. Our approach also differs from many others in that we endeavour to structure projects around the hands-on involvement of our core experts. Where we require specialist input we draw from a pool of trusted associate experts, many of whom are internationally recognised in their own right.

A key differentiator for PPA Energy is our developing country experience. We understand the very complex political, social, economic and financial challenges which can face developing country utilities and we are used to developing solutions which are appropriate to the local context and culture.

What we do:

  • Organisational restructuring, (setting up Strategic Business Units, outsourcing, etc.)
  • Design and implementation of performance monitoring systems, KPIs and benchmarking
  • Financial modelling and financial evaluation/recovery planning
  • Loss reduction and advice on metering/billing systems
  • Business Process Re-engineering
  • Capacity building and training
  • Operational Efficiency
