Energy, Utilities & Renewables

Interim Management in the Energy, Utilities & Renewables Sector

MANAGERIM provides you with interim managers who are experts in the energy, utilities and renewable sectors to help you meet your transformation challenges


The energy, utilities and environment sectors are undergoing profound changes.

There is no human activity that is not energy consuming, directly or indirectly. Today, energy needs are mostly covered by fossil fuels. In addition to being exhaustible, they represent more than two thirds of the greenhouse gas emissions attributable to human activities.

Faced with these challenges, companies in the energy sector must participate in the energy transition by continuing their transformation efforts, in particular by adapting their economic models and offering solutions to:

  • develop renewable energies (wind, photovoltaic, geothermal, biomass, etc.) especially by solving storage issues
  • reduce energy consumption in all sectors (industry, residential, tertiary, transport), by making better use of existing or future technologies
  • Make electricity accessible to as many people as possible through the implementation of decentralized energy infrastructure and systems in developing countries and mainly in Africa

The development of these offers requires mastering digital technologies (Big data, IoT, artificial intelligence, smart meters, smart home, smart grids, smart cities...).

Companies in the sector are accelerating their transformation to strengthen their competitiveness and must, in particular:

  • Strengthen research & development and innovation efforts
  • Accelerate the digital transformation of their tools, methods and processes
  • Boost the continuous improvement of their performance
  • Continuously strengthen their capacity to manage complex projects and to monitor and financially control major projects
  • Boost their human resources management, training and talent management and retention policies
