EaaS: Electricity as a Service?
2019-1-30, Xu, Yueqiang, Ahokangas, Petri, Reuter, Emmanuelle
Innovative business models have been transforming and disrupting traditional industries in an unprecedented speed. The energy industry is no exception. The advent of smart grid has initiated paradigm shifts from traditional product-based business models to service provision. An essential question is that, “How can energy industry create and capture new value from service business, turning the existing product-based business model to service orientation?” This study addresses research gaps regarding 1) the value perspective for business model; 2) the ecosystem thinking for complex industries; 3) maximising systemic value for an ecosystem rather than a focal firm. The study collects business model case data from BRIDGE, a high-level initiative of the European Commission uniting 31 major European energy projects. The research includes the full 50 business model cases contributed by experts from 15 EU Horizon 2020 innovation projects. The study utilises the 4C ecosystemic framework and the XaaS (Everything as a Service) digital service business model typologies. A key outcome is the proposition of Electricity as a Service (EaaS) concept with four service business model typologies for the energy sector, proposing a new service business paradigm for the energy ecosystem. The study proposes a value-based approach and service-dominant logic towards business model research at ecosystemic level. For the first time, the study introduces the XaaS service business typologies, investigating how this well-established ICT (Information and Communication Technology) business concept can enable the digitalisation of the energy industry.

Overcoming Cognitive Constraints to Strategic Adaptation: Exploring Three Perspectives
2015, Reuter, Emmanuelle
Prior research uncovered that decision-makers face important cognitive constraints to strategically adapt to a discontinuous environment. With the purpose to further scholarly understanding of this managerial problem, this dissertation investigates how social influence mechanisms can support strategic decision-makers to overcome the cognitive constraints involved in strategic adaptation to discontinuous change. The dissertation has two overarching purposes: First, it seeks to develop theory on the dynamic processes through which decision-makers can overcome their cognitive constraints. Second, it develops theory on the particular roles of social influence mechanisms from the organization's internal and external context for shaping these dynamics. This dissertation proceeds as follows: Chapter A provides a summarized overview of existing literature and introduces the dissertation's overarching framework, with related conceptual definitions upon which the subsequent theoretical arguments build. It motivates the dissertation's overall research focus and three specific research questions that will be addressed within three single-standing articles. The first two articles (Chapters C and D) comprise conceptual studies. They offer conceptual accounts of how top managers vary in their use of attention capacity, and of reasoning routines by highlighting linkages between social influences and these cognitive processes. Chapter E comprises an empirical study on the deinstitutionalization of Swiss banking secrecy. This article elaborates on how social conflict processes force decision-makers to overcome institutionalized prescriptions in order to engage in institutional change. Chapter F offers a discussion of the dissertation's major implications - a detailed conceptual and empirical elaboration of the social influences dynamics that instigate decision-makers to overcome cognitive constraints and to foster strategic adaptation to discontinuities.
