Agile product management in the energy industry.
rensys GmbH offers its customers professional and holistic support in product management along the entire value chain of the energy industry. Today, our focus is mainly on renewable energy for customers from industry and the energy sector as well as related stakeholders.
Agile product management
Agility, originally from the software development environment, exists in our product management tasks according to Scrum, not only limited to software development but also specific to products. Accordingly, performance can be adjusted and optimized for the benefit of customers, and the risk of bad investments can be reduced.
The product owner, which we are happy to provide in persona, is not only responsible for the creation of a new product but also oversees its further development and thus controls the product lifecycle, creates continuity, and supports a long-term focus on product success.
In addition, a Scrum Master provided by us acts as a coach, advisor, and advocate for Product Owners and teams.

The team is multi-disciplined, provided by us if needed, and is responsible for delivering the product at the end of each sprint. The team members ensure that the product meets customer expectations and is produced during the sprint.
Value Proposition Canvas
We use a structure that first maps the business model using a digital Business Model Canvas (BMC) and then identifies the products and their requirements using a Value Proposition Canvas (VPC). In this way, we create a basis for the further procedure and thus then the implementation of the tasks.
Business Model Canvas
A product idea alone does not make a successful company. To build sustainable independence, companies always need a business model that fits the concept.
The main reason for using the Business Model Canvas is to visualize the essential elements of a successful business model briefly. By focusing on nine areas, innovative and complex projects quickly become practical.

Benefits for the customers
You can make the best product globally, but if it doesn’t meet your customers’ expectations, it won’t sell. It is based firstly on developing a Minimum Viable Product (MVP), a product that meets the minimum requirements, and secondly on iterative product development based on customer feedback.
Value Propostion Canvas
Recent companies do not think about the market when developing their products or services and do not win enough customers. How do you prevent this at the start?
The Value Proposition Canvas is a tool for aligning one’s own product and service offering with the target group’s needs.
Benefits for the customers
Canvas can determine if a product has a good product-market fit and is therefore “marketable.” The benefits of your offering vary by customer “win” and “problem solver.” They match the wants and needs of the target audience.
Working together for your product along the entire value chain of the energy industry
The renewable energy value chain mainly consists of the following phases: Generation, transmission, conversion, storage, and consumption. Wind energy and solar energy are the most important renewable energy sources. In addition, biomass makes a valuable contribution to a sustainable energy supply.
- Other energy sources: In addition to the renewable energy sources presented above, we also see the generation of electrical and thermal energy from biological and other valuable materials in the future. Here, too, we support you with our experience in testing and developing new systems and using the tools we have tested.
- Solar energy: Like the wind energy sector, we deal with the diverse environment of photovoltaic and solar power plants in the solar energy sector.
Ladeinfrastruktur: ist zwar eigentlich kein Hauptbestandteil der Energieverteilung, aber eine sehr gute Zusammenfassung unserer Leistung im Produktmanagement. Heutige Elektrofahrzeuge werden hauptsächlich im Verteilnetz mit Niederspannung geladen. Die Bedeutung der heutigen neuen Anwendungen nimmt rapide zu und allerlei neue Produkte stehen auf der Tagesordnung.
Ob beim Laden von Autos, Bussen oder Schiffen wir haben unsere Expertise in diesem Bereich optimal aufgebaut.
Schaltanlagen: Seine Aufgabe ist es, die elektrische Energie zu schalten. Sie werden für die entsprechende Spannungsebene gehalten und beinhalten ein sehr hohes Maß an Interaktion mit dem Netzmanagement. Heute wird durch komplexe Steuerungen und Messgeräte eine nahezu unterbrechungsfreie Energieversorgung sichergestellt
Transmission / Transformation
The energy provided is not usually required at the point of delivery. Electrical power is transmitted using overhead lines and cables. The electrical energy is distributed at lower voltage levels (high voltage 110 kV and medium voltage, e.g., 20 kV) to the consumer.
Overhead lines and cables are conductors of the electrical energy made of copper or aluminum, which are either suspended over land as overhead lines on power poles or buried at a safe depth in the ground as cables. The demands for cables grow with the services and applications, and therefore the product management works at full speed to ensure state of the art.
Substations and transformer stations are the nodes of our transmission and distribution network. They provide the means to switch power and “convert” it to the desired voltage level via a transformer. The substations usually consist of several plant components, further developed as a product.
ENERGY STORAGE & CONSUMPTION
In the transmission of gases, the transmission and distribution lines are used to store the energy contained in the gas there. Unfortunately, it is not physically possible with electrical energy, which means that only the required amount of energy can be transmitted.
Hydrogen: is an infinite gas in nature with a very high energy density of 120 MJ/kg. Most of the hydrogen on our planet is molecularly bound to water. However, electrolysis can be used to separate hydrogen from water and renewable electrical energy.
