- Value Propositions in a Smart Local Energy System
This report explores Value Propositions for adoption of technologies and practices enabling participation in Smart Local Energy Systems (SLES). It is based on experience of Project LEO partners in developing and implementing SLES offers.
It describes sources of value and relationships between actors as they are seen by some of the main LEO stakeholders, as an introduction to the issues at this early stage in SLES development. The report addresses three main questions:
- Where does the capability to participate in SLES come from and how can it be developed
- How can engagement between actors be fostered, building on social capital?
- What types of value proposition show promise for SLES at this stage of development, and why?
The research for this report has found that there has been some value created through a flex offer to all the LEO stakeholders studied. However, the offers are multidimensional and nuanced and so are the stakeholder responses.
