Partner & Director
Lars Holm rejoined Boston Consulting Group in 2015 after spending nearly two decades working in the energy industry in various functions. During his time away from BCG, Lars was the founder and managing director of RatioPower, an independent investment company focusing on renewables in the wind power industry. He also worked in roles including managing director at Schindler in Denmark, head of sales for Europe and senior vice president of project development at Nordex, a leading developer and manufacturer of wind turbines.
Previously, Lars worked for BCG as a project leader from 1992 to 1996.
At BCG, Lars leads BCG's global work in wind power and renewable energy. Since returning to the firm, he has focused his work on supporting leading utilities in developing growth strategies in renewable energies; in analyzing the competitive space; in validating, improving, and de-risking offshore plans, and in benchmarking operational costs.
He has also worked with leading OEMs on subjects such as improving the execution of offshore projects, identifying market potentials and assessing the market approach, and reducing material costs by improving the sourcing process.
His recent work includes: helping a wind developer negotiate its nonrecourse financing with a bank syndicate, and helping a wind OEM build a global project development organization.
Power and utilities sector investors expect higher prices and more volatility. As they invest in an undervalued sector, they want greater transparency on companies’ energy transition plans.
Key stakeholders believe that oil prices will remain high in the short term. They also think that companies need to plan for the transition to cleaner energy.
New entrants in renewable energy will need to think holistically, take a long-term approach, and understand the financial impact of different scale levers in order to succeed.
The region is set to become the key destination for renewable-energy development and investment, with capacity expected to increase by about 2 terawatts by 2030.
How and where IoT can create value for wind energy companies, based on BCG’s extensive experiences across the asset lifecycle.
Volume & fidelity of wind turbine generators and third-party data have increased tremendously. How, and where, can IoT create value for wind energy companies?
Wind power is going mainstream. As the industry matures, it must shift from maximizing megawatts to optimizing the lifetime value of turbines and other assets.
