BET is a leading consultancy for the energy and

water industries that was founded in 1988 by

Dr. Wolfgang Zander and Dr. Michael Ritzau in

Aachen. BET draws upon an experienced team

of experts comprising more than 50 engineers,

industrial engineers and economists.

We stand for concepts that boost competition

and guarantee effective markets. The energy

and water industry fills an important focal position

in our industrial society. We want to measure

up to the high standards of responsibility set by

this industry for society as a whole.

in a world depending on increasingly scarce


The energy and water industry is our special

field. BET offers highly qualified consultancy

which covers the entire value added chain of the

energy and water industry: From production or

generation and regulated grid access to trading

and sales.

The consultancy topics cover over the following


> Project development for generation and storage


> Technical-economic grid concepts

> Expert opinions, analyses and market models

for energy markets

> Company and plant evaluation

> Process organisation and change management

> Management and strategy consulting

We advise our customers comprehensively.

Our work covers all the steps from the strategic

concept to implementation. Jointly

with our cu-stomers, we work out innovative

and practicable solutions because we are

comprehensively proficient in all as-pects of

business economics, energy industry economics

and also the technical fundamentals.

In collaboration with our customers, we

wish to develop economically efficient, and

simultaneously, environmentally sustainable


Our broad customer base consists of municipal

utilities, grid operators, energy traders,

de-centralised generators, large power plant

operators, cooperatives and energy intensive

industrial customers. Our politic consultancy

serves government authorities, ministries

and political decision-makers. Germany is

our core market. However we are increasingly

directing our attention to the European energy


We are independent. We see ourselves as a

neutral consultancy company for the energy

industry, which is free from individual

interests. All BET shares are owned by the

managing directors and executive staff. As

a medium-sized consultancy company with

a flat hierarchy, we can react flexibly and
