The energy and mobility sectors, along with the related infrastructure, constitute the backbone of modern societies and therefore are a core element of our everyday lives.
Disruptive developments such as digitization are currently exerting immense transformation pressure on the energy and mobility sectors, culminating in the current energy and transport transition. In specific terms, for the energy and mobility sectors this means a reciprocal and also mutually accelerating development of the kind that is being witnessed in the field of smart cities and eVehicles, for instance. This also entails CAPEX-intensive infrastructure projects that lay the foundations for the forthcoming changes. A consistent trend in this regard is the abandonment of an isolated view of individual segments. This interaction – accelerated by technological developments – leads to traditional value chains being broken up and relevant activities being regrouped.
Enterprises engaged in these industries thus face the challenge of consistently having to renew themselves and their business models and to actively include today’s employees in this transformation and enable them to participate in shaping the future. In the process, on the one hand classic business models need to be reconsidered, with traditional organizational structures calling for adaptation. On the other, external growth options that lie beyond the original corporate perimeter also need to be newly determined.
goetzpartners is convinced that today’s energy and transport transition is to be understood as an overall societal transformation and uses its Industry Group Energy, Infrastructure & Mobility to assist its clients with their strategic questions and the challenges they face. With our unique combination of management consulting and corporate finance services, we support companies in shaping their individual solutions.

MASTERING RAIL DATA COMPLEXITY
The rail operations ecosystem is a complex puzzle. Historically grown over decades, the system and its assets today are highly heterogeneous. The efficiency of every asset within the ecosystem depends on the performance of various other assets. Hope for unraveling this complexity is placed in digitalization.
RAIL LIBERALIZATION IN FRANCE
France is liberalizing its passenger rail market. Since 2019, French regions have been able to tender competitively for regional rail traffic. From 2023, competitive tendering will become mandatory. The regions, now the purchaser of the services, need to acquire the capabilities to manage complex tender processes strategically and operationally.
THE GERMAN E-SCOOTER MARKET
Despite challenging market conditions, sharing services for e-scooters can make a profitable and sustainable contribution to urban mobility. Cities and municipalities in Germany could set the competitive framework by tendering scooter-sharing services for a limited period in a defined urban area.
INTELLIGENT CITY TOLL TO ADVANCE URBAN MOBILITY
Increasing urbanization is a challenge for traffic in many German cities. While motorized private transport in metropolitan areas is increasing, the road infrastructure scarcely meets the growing demand. Consequently, traffic congestion in city centers is becoming more severe and has effects on pollution, noise levels and overall quality of life.
THE OPERATIONAL DIGITIZATION OF RAIL
Operational digitization of the rail system offers substantial potential to increase efficiency and resilience – this is common sense. Yet, although rail players across the value chain are ramping up their capabilities, there is often a substantial gap between aspiration levels and operational reality.
