Many hundreds of respondents in the Energy sector have already participated in a study through the HPO Insight™ improvement tool. These companies know that improvement and innovation are required to improve performance. The Energy sector faces the reality of a complete change in the next 10 years.

The five HPO pillars are made up of 35 validated HPO characteristics. Below, you can find the average scores in the Energy sector:

Quality of Management

Openness & Action Orientation

Long-Term Orientation

Continuous Improvement & Renewal

Quality of Employees

Sustainable energy generation will play a decisive role in building new power plants. Meanwhile, markets are already adjusting to this reality. In addition, transmission and distribution networks will be controlled with the aid of software more and more. Many electric technologies and applications, such as heat pumps, electric vehicles, solar panels, and batteries, are integrated into IT systems in buildings. These buildings do not only consume energy, they also produce it. Energy will continue to be personalized, allowing end-users to have more insight into the origin and price of their electricity supply.

10 trends that have already been deployed and that will transform existing power systems:

  1. Electrification of energy demand
  2. New materials
  3. Digitization
  4. Wind power: Bigger and smarter
  5. Solar energy
  6. Electricity storage
  7. Demand response
  8. Smart, energy-producing buildings
  9. Intelligent electricity grids
  10. Hybrid power systems use

What is required to respond to the ever-changing developments?

The HPO Insight™ improvement tool helps energy companies to work on performance improvement and energy sector innovation in a benchmark energy sectorfocused way. New ways of working first require insight into the qualities and challenges of the internal organization. Without motivated employees and progressive leaders, the introduction of new systems, optimization of processes or change in supply, for example, will not be successful.

Benchmark Energy sector

Hundreds of managers and employees from the Energy sector have given scores for the 35 HPO characteristics. The average results for, among other things, the five HPO factors have been filtered from this. Using HPO Insight™, you can find out how the internal organization is performing regarding these HPO characteristics and HPO factors, and you will receive the Key Improvement Areas (KIAs) for your (part of the) organization. You will also immediately gain insight into your performance compared with the Energy data in our HPO database.
