Business model development and business ecosystem evaluation in the energy domain

  • The energy turnaround, digitalization and decreasing revenues forces enterprises in the energy domain to develop new business models. Following a Design Science Research approach, we showed in two action research projects that businesses models in the energy domain result in complex ecosystems with multiple actors. Additionally, we identified that municipal utilities have problems with the systematic development of business models. In order to solve the problem, we captured together with the partners of the enterprises the requirements in a second phase. Further we developed a method which consist of the following components: Method for the creative development of a new business model in form of a Business Model Canvas (BMC). A mapping between the e3Value ontology and the BMC for modelling a business ecosystem. The Business Model Configurator (BMConfig) prototype for modelling and simulating the e3Value-Ontology. The Business model can be quantified and analyzed for its viability. We demonstrate the feasibility of our approach in business model of a power community.
