Implementation of a Model Descriptive Tool for Competitiveness in Energy Companies
Purpose: The aim of the research was to identify the factors and barriers which, in the opinion of the representatives of the surveyed entities, affect the competitiveness of companies from the energy sector in the Silesian Province. The Silesian Voivodeship still remains the most important Polish region in terms of energy development. Both production and demand for energy in Silesia are the largest in the whole country. However, a decrease in demand for energy generated in a conventional way should be expected in the coming years. As a result of empirical research, it was indicated that in the opinion of the vast majority of respondents, the competitiveness of their own company was perceived rather well. Approach/Methodology/Design: Scientific and industry literature and secondary results from energy companies and other reports were analysed. The article contains the results of own analyses, which were carried out on the basis of data obtained in the course of research carried out in energy companies. Findings: It was found that the surveyed companies, which have been operating on the market for a shorter period of time have evaluated their competitiveness well or very well. Interesting solutions have been created on a global scale based on the proposed modelling. Practical Implications: The applied research allowed to create a model for practical implications that could help not only in Poland but worldwide. Originality/Value: The research provides theoretical assumptions and practical answers to encourage further research and summary research on a global scale.
