D1.2 Emerging Business Models and Energy Market Models
The main objective of this document is to explore the application of the business model Canvas in crossborder management of variable renewable energies and storage units enabling a transnational wholesale market using the Smart Grid. We focused on the most citied business model, that is, the Business Model Canvas. It is basically a visual chart composed of nine building blocks describing Key Partners, Key Activities, Key Resources, Value Proposition, Customer Relationships, Channels, Customer Segments, Cost Structure and Revenue Stream (equivalent to value capture) focusing on products, services or processes. We present a detailed overview of the Business Model Canvas and the nine-building blocks, as well as other details regarding the cost evaluation and pricing mechanisms.
