- PublicationAn Experimental Investigation on the Comprehension of Electricity Consumption, Generation and Grid Supply VisualizationEnergy consumption at the household level has a significant environmental impact. However, it is often difficult for end users to understand this complex topic. Hence, end users need to sight and understand their own energy data by means of appropriate visualizations to achieve a sustainable change towards more efficient energy consumption behavior. By means of an experimental online survey, the comprehension of energy data visualizations with regard to the daily electricity consumption of a multi-person household was surveyed. A total of n = 538 respondents were asked about their comprehension at three levels of difficulty, considering the response duration. The results show that comprehension differs depending on the energy data visualization type and its information density. This work contributes to determine appropriate visualization types to unleash potential for more energy efficient end user behavior.

- PublicationOpen Innovation Processes as Drivers for Business Model Developments Enabling a Successful Energy TransitionRenewable energy systems are a key enabler for a successful transition of our current energy systems. However, in every transition process numerous different interests and requirements, often diverging or opposed to each other, must be considered. “Open Innovation” approaches overcome this divergency and increase one’s own innovation potential by involving all relevant actors along the value chain. This work presents approaches, experiences, challenges, and results of Open Innovation processes applied to stakeholder groups in three different use cases. In these use cases, multi-stage, iterative processes for stakeholder integration are applied. The results of the first use case stages show a high degree of diversity in terms of different stakeholder treatment. These conflicts are tackled by the Open Innovation process, proving that a fruitful collaborative business model development is feasible.
