Evaluating business models of a decentralized energy system

Poster presentation at the 7th Solar Integration Workshop in Berlin on October 24, 2017.

Commonly used visualization methods for business models reach their limits when applied to business models in the energy industry due to a large variety of stakeholders and their interactions as well as several other specific characteristics. This paper analyzes the shortcomings of these standard methods and subsequently derives suggestions for further development. The analyses show that a suitable method should include information flows, potentially changing roles of stakeholders and direct interactions between customers.
