The Energy Transition
Four Proposition Areas to Support the Energy Industry and Ongoing Transition
It is clear that the energy industry is undergoing significant change. With the drive towards developing cleaner energy, businesses are faced with the challenge of transitioning to greener energy, in a secure and commercially efficient way.
At Delaware, we focus on four key proposition areas that harness technology to enable energy businesses to achieve their transformation objectives.
Asset Integrity Management
Asset Integrity has always been a key part of any energy company's strategy. It is about ensuring consistent performance of assets throughout their lives, to deliver the business objectives profitably and without major incident. Following standards such as PAS55 and ISO55000 provide a strong framework to enable AIM. This also needs to consider the direction coming from the North Sea Transition Deal:
“we need to focus all our efforts on decarbonising our economy”
The Energy sector has signed up to this objective, supporting the government’s net zero objectives through its Roadmap 2035. As a key part of this the need for strong AIM practices is ever more important.
Assets need to perform in terms of operational efficiency, reliability, safety as well as reduced emissions and other environmental considerations. The assets themselves may change as a direct result of increased electrification.
Aligning the right technology solution to support your AIM strategy is key to a successful outcome, whether that involves a Transformational approach or a more Transitional strategy, driving more from your existing Technology landscape. Delaware have aligned the teams and tools to support you with your objectives

People and Skills
Now, more than ever, energy companies are faced with the challenge of recruiting, retraining, and retaining the best people in a highly competitive market.
We understand these challenges. To develop the skills you need to outperform your competition, you need to deliver an exceptional employee experience.
That’s why, at Delaware, we focus on delivering systems built around Human Experience Management (HXM). Talented employees with the most sought-after skills are increasingly hard to find.
