PowerWeek: One-Stop-Shops

A digital information platform for your customers

You are the professionals in the energy transition - show how and why!

Gain the trust of your customers and benefit from

sustainably through your one-stop-shop, a digital information and networking platform.

Digitization of municipal utilities

Municipal utilities are essential players in the energy transition. To ensure a reliable, sustainable, and innovative energy supply, they need the trust of their customers and the know-how of young professionals.

To further expand this trust in their services and attractiveness to young professionals, municipal utilities must make their services and knowledge visible and usable.

This can be achieved through a one-stop-shop. In this digital place, all information about products and services on topics such as sustainable energy supply is available around the clock.

What is a one-stop-shop?

A one-stop-shop is a digital place where all information about products and services on relevant topics, such as sustainable energy supply, is available around the clock.


Once set up, your one-stop-shop acts as an information platform in both directions. Customers can be kept up to date with the latest trends and news while you gain access to smart new talent.


We build the foundation of your one-stop-shop in just one week.

Advantages of a one-stop-shop

As an interface, the One-Stop-Shop binds customers to your organization and makes you the first point of contact: Keep them informed about energy prices and the reliability of your energy network. Use our digital interface to inform your customers about your energy and mobility services and current local offers.

You are driving the local energy transition daily and are, therefore, also a pioneer in this field: Share your expertise and provide your customers with comprehensive information about investing in solar energy and alternative heating methods. The commodity business is declining - and you can offer services that help citizens become prosumers. Address the most important questions of your target group.

Informing about a new service via push notification or promoting local celebrations? Among many other possibilities, these are approaches your one-stop-shop can use to reduce costs.

Show that your municipal utility offers progressive working time models that always keep your employees' well-being and development opportunities in mind. In this way, you aggressively address the needs of your future employees and gain a fundamental advantage in the competition for skilled workers.

The QLab PowerWeek

With maximum efficiency to a
successful one-stop-shop

To produce usable results within the shortest possible time, during the QLab PowerWeek, we apply the agile methods of Design Thinking. These are based on the Design Sprint, which became internationally famous through Google Ventures.

To develop customized solutions that optimally reflect your and your customer's needs is our goal. We work closely with your team to achieve this with your future information platform.

As the name "QLab PowerWeek" suggests, it is a week full of power in which we lay the foundation of your one-stop-shop together.

The QLab PowerWeek is based on the principles of Design Thinking - and can therefore also be applied to any other topic. Whatever your company urgently needs, the QLab creates the basis within one week and quickly develops excellent solutions!

  • Location: The PowerWeek can be held remotely, onsite, or as a hybrid.
  • Duration: 5 working days of 8 working hours each. (9.30 a.m. – 5.30 p.m.)
  • Sprint moderation by the QLab-team
  • Developer team
  • Public utility team
  • End customers who test the product
During the briefing discussion with you, we will determine the following:
  • Exactly what the product should be at the end of QLab PowerWeek.
  • Who from the public utilities takes part in the PowerWeek. We need a maximum of 5 people, including a decision-maker (who does not have to be present all the time), marketing, sales, IT, etc.)
  • Who the test customers are whom we will acquire in advance.
  • Check-in and team building
  • Specifying requirements and outlining solutions
  • Wrap-up
  • Check-in
