Supporting renewable energy business innovation - identifying system delivery network's synergies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review


Open networked collaboration provides renewable energy solutions providers a way to search for new business opportunities. By identifying common synergies with partners representing different technologies and knowledge, more cost effective and reliable energy solutions can be provided to the customers. Service-centric offerings need to be based on real customer needs. Therefore, also customer's active role in innovation process is crucial. Methods supporting this process must provide structure and be based on long term collaboration approach. The research presented in this paper is based on two real-life areal energy solution development cases. The possible sources of synergies within the provider network were identified using a workshop method based on the combination of Osterwalder's Business Model Canvas and life-cycle approach. The results of these workshops were analysed using thematic approach.
