At Leuphana University we conducted a workshop on future energy business. How to model value networks for Virtual Powerplants (System Image) where value emerges from the distributed activities ... of different instances instead of being centered around a central proposition and provider? This was one of the challenges in designing a value-driven innovation approach to collaboratively develop business ideas and models for regional systems of renewable energies. Our clients were impressed by the quality and depth of results - especially the combination of a futures workshop with business modeling proved to be a most valuable approach. Exemplary results will be available through the Innovation Incubator of the Leuphana University Lüneburg.
