PPM and document management

European Energy is a developer of wind and solar projects. Recently, European Energy have also started to work with Power-to-X, i.e., the conversion of excess electricity into liquid fuel. This development meant a need for better project and portfolio management.

European Energy needed a new project management and portfolio solution, as well as a new tool for their document and contract management. European Energy is experiencing strong growth, both in terms of the size of projects, the number of projects and, not least, the geographical distribution of its energy parks. They were looking for a tool for portfolio and project management. As a result, it was a strategic choice by European Energy to get an IT solution where everything was in one place.  

“Why did we need a new solution? We did, because complexity is increasing and so is our pipeline. So, to handle increased complexity as well as more and bigger projects, we needed a qualified base to manage our projects.”
– Maja Rasmussen, Deputy Head of Projects, European Energy

“Previously, we used several different platforms to handle what we now have in one. We had so many different Excel sheets, and so many different platforms where different project managers managed according to your own models. We moved data around. Our new solution has “the truth” in one place.”
– Maja Rasmussen, Deputy Head of Projects, European Energy
