Business Model Innovation in the Energy Sector: A Dialogue with Stakeholders

LDN.1.04, Loughborough University London

Come along to our campus on Thursday 4 July 2019 for a dialogue with stakeholders of the energy sector to understand the drivers and impact of energy business model innovations.

Organised by the Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, School of Business and Economics and Modularity Grid, this workshop is a full-day event with speakers and participants ranging from academics, industrial experts, policymakers and research students. 

Supported by the JOINT Fund inititative, the goal is to (1) develop a better understanding of the current energy business context and the role of key stakeholders and their experience with the existing energy business models; (2) assess the impact of technologies (e.g., digitalisation) in driving energy business model innovation, making electricity affordable, reliable, and sustainable; (3) identify research challenges and opportunities in entrepreneurship and innovation (e.g., business model innovation, entrepreneurship, and innovation ecosystem) in the energy sector; and (4) offer meaningful insights for the UK energy companies and policymakers to achieve sustainable developments.
