Innovation is vital to attaining a sustainable electrical energy process. New applied sciences and organizational alterations can lead to extra sustainable, climate-friendly electrical energy buildings. but the dynamics of innovation are advanced, and hard to form. This booklet, written by means of specialists within the box, units out to discover the dynamics, the drivers and the environment of innovation procedures. Case stories on micro cogeneration, carbon seize and garage, purchaser suggestions, community law and emissions buying and selling offer insights into innovation dynamics within the electrical energy approach and are analyzed to derive strategic implications for innovation rules. a different concentration is put on drivers and limitations of switch, and their results for shaping the innovation approach. This publication is an imperative resource of data for researchers and choice makers in power and weather switch in addition to for academics and scholars attracted to the rules and ramifications of electrical energy innovation dynamics.

E. be implemented) within real world contexts. In our case, this means that the model or prototype needs to become effective as part of the operational working of the electricity system. 1 Conceptualizing Innovation 31 policy innovation, it refers to the actual implementation and enforcement of measures, for a social innovation it means the diffusion and stabilization of social attitudes and norms of behavior among relevant parts of society. For the selection of innovation cases, this meant that we did not only consider “new” inventions, but also looked at ideas or prototypes of technologies, or innovative behavior or policies that have been known for some time, but have not yet completed their respective “innovation process”, as its implementation (either market introduction, diffusion or policy enforcement) is still under way.

Since the conditions for adaptation, development and implementation differ, the process of innovation needs to be studied separately for varying contexts. Solving a problem or being perceived as an improvement by a social group or actor. Many theorists define innovation normatively, claiming that they lead to more effectiveness or efficiency, improve living conditions or make society more humane. In our research, however, we stress that the expectation of improvement or problem solving is the core motivation for deliberately undertaking innovation activities.

In Germany, this has been the typical model for micro cogeneration up to now, involving local energy agencies or contracting sub-units of the electricity or gas industry; they usually own and operate the micro cogeneration unit. The availability of such external operator schemes obviously depends on the margin they are able to realize when offering their services. Given the economic features of micro cogeneration today, this model is mostly not (yet) viable for smaller-scale micro cogeneration units.
