Decision Support and Consultancy

We offer decision support and consultancy in the areas Energy/Commodity Management and Trading, Environmental Systems, and Software Development based on a 25+ years industry and research experience.

FERDEC's philosophy is to offer top quality consultancy to leading companies without making compromises. We are convinced that superior decision support can make the difference in a high competitive market.

To offer the best possible services to our Clients, we have established the approach of a Centre of Excellence which allows us to offer both: the top qualified consultants of FERDEC and a pool of partners from the industry and the scientific world. This allows us to provide the following services:

Consultancy and Coaching

Our consultants support renowned players of the energy, environmental and financial sectors in their decision making process around the areas of energy trading, risk management and portfolio management. Our strength is bridging the gap between Business Users and their needs on the one side and IT solutions and their abilities on the other side – with the goal to create an effective and integrated end-to-end solution which is truly geared towards the needs and goals of a superior ETRM/CTRM organization. Our profound experience in international ETRM/CTRM markets and IT helps us translate your requirements into front-to-end processes – from the modelling of multi-asset portfolios to enterprise-wide risk valuation and reporting.

Applied Research Projects

Our Clients do not only want to run their existing business in the most efficient way but also need to discover new and/or hidden business opportunities. It is one of FERDEC’s biggest focus area to leverage our cooperation with Research Centres and Universities in Europe and the United States to offer applied research to support our Clients throughout this discovery.

Software Selection Support

The process of selecting the right software application(s) for your business is a difficult and risky undertaking with a huge impact on the profitability of your organisation. Based on our in-depth experience with multiple ETRM/CTRM systems, we are able to offer highly efficient decision support to guide you through the selection process and help you to make the right choice for your business – from analysis and definition of the business requirements to evaluation of the shortlisted applications.

Project Quality Management

Similar to the Software Selection, the content-related management of a complex software implementation is extremely challenging and bears a lot of risks. Based on our long experience, FERDEC is able to provide you with experience and tools to set up, manage and run ETRM/CTRM software implementation and upgrade projects to a final success.


FERDEC Centres of Excellence is an innovative approach to consulting where we follow directly our philosophy to offer the best possible quality and knowledge for a specific and complex area. To maintain this in a sustainable way, we are constantly working on the development and specialization of our consultants as well as on the extension of our pool of partners. Our ultimate goal is to meet the high standards and expectations of our Clients by delivering first class Decision Support.
