Business Model Innovation in Energy (Storage)

Business Model Innovation in Energy (Storage)

Lead innovation in a rapidly changing world. Build future-proof business models that shape the future of energy and energy storage.

We will announce the next run of this course in due course. If you are interested and would like to know when this course is open for enrolment, register your interest below.

Change in the energy space is fast. Digital innovation is disrupting business models, taking us from products to services, from bricks and mortar to platforms. Decentralisation is reshaping the competitive environment. And evolving technologies bring new challenges to negotiate. How do you and your company keep pace with change?

Business Model Innovation in Energy (Storage) is a new workshop by InnoEnergy, one of Europe’s leading authorities in energy and business innovation. During the workshop, you build a rock-solid understanding of the latest in energy (storage) technology and business model innovation in an ever-evolving energy landscape. You emerge from the course, empowered to:

  • Understand different business models, particularly of battery storage at grid-scale, behind-the-meter, off-grid and in mobility
  • Decipher the kinds of business models that will keep you ahead in a turbulent energy market
  • Leverage in-depth revenue models to detect gaps and spot early opportunities
  • Use early-market validation to drive business results
  • Identify the business model with the highest potential based on market size and revenue inflow
  • Pitch your business model confidently and with authority.

What will you learn?

You explore the key dynamics of business model innovation for a changing energy landscape, particularly the impact of existing and changing energy and energy storage.

To get the most from this workshop, we recommend that you take our free online course, Battery Storage Technology: Opportunities and Uses, in preparation for the workshop (although this is not compulsory). In the online course you will discover promising battery storage technologies; exploring their workings, strengths, weaknesses, and possible place in Europe’s future. You’ll look into a range of uses; not only in the energy sector - but in transportation, industry, the home and more.

In our face-to-face workshop you will dive deeper and explore:

  • Analogy thinking: How to steal like an artist by listening to inspiring business model cases
  • Ideation tools for mapping business models and eco-systems
  • Revenue model exploration
  • Business model selection
  • Connection rules
  • Participation in balancing, flexibility and other grid services
  • Transmission and distribution charges and levies

The preparatory online course, Battery Storage Technology: Opportunities and Uses, is expertly designed to maximise impact and flexibility. As long as you have access to the internet, you can pursue your learning anytime, anywhere at the pace and rhythm that works for you. Assessment is based on multiple-choice tests after every other lecture and a final test assessment.
