How can Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) become a mainstream building component? And what are viable business models to foster such an integration? We are working for an international group of reseachers and practitioners of the International Energy Agency in Uppsala, Sweden. We captured directive values in European BIPV business to develop new business models for making BIPV a mainstream building component. Based on an initial collection and discussion of values 18 new business ideas have been identified. Two of these ideas were elaborated upon using the Business Innovation Kit, named Power2Consumers and Photovoltaic Catalogue. Two groups worked to sketch viable business models for each ideas and described five business models in more detail. Thanks and regards to a highly engaged group of participants!

The latest extension set to the Business Innovation Kit facilitates modelling customer journeys. Nine cards help you address the seven touchpoints:   I. Become aware II. Inform III. Acquire / Buy IV. Start Up V. Use VI. Modify VII. Dispose / Renew   How do customers and / or stakeholders proceed from one to the next? How should the journey look and feel like? Which motives, requirements or fears need to be addressed?   First, select one of the relevant customer or stakeholder groups and take an imaginary walk through their journey. That means their overall experience with your company, its products and services. Alternatively start collecting ideas for each touchpoint. Then select a stakeholder group and draw its journey line from one touchpoint idea to the next. Enrich your ideas with photographs and original quotes from customer feedback or internal staff.   Touchpoint_Cards_IV_Modify_UXBerlinExample Card: Modify
