Über dieses Buch

This open access book addresses the issue of diffusing sustainable energy access in

low- and middle-income contexts.

Access to energy is one of the greatest challenges for many people living in low-

income and developing contexts, as around 1.4 billion people lack access to electricity.

Distributed Renewable Energy systems (DRE) are considered a promising approach

to address this challenge and provide energy access to all. However, even if promising,

the implementation of DRE systems is not always straightforward.

The book analyses, discusses and classifies the promising Sustainable Product-Service

System (S.PSS) business models to deliver Distributed Renewable Energy systems in an

effective, efficient and sustainable way. Its message is supported with cases studies and

examples, discussing the economic, environmental and socioethical benefits as well

as its limitations and barriers to its implementation. An innovative design approach is

proposed and a set of design tools are supplied, enabling readers to create and develop

Sustainable Product-Service System (S.PSS) solutions to deliver Distributed Renewable

Energy systems.

Practical applications of the book’s design approach and tools by companies and

practitioners are discussed and the book will be of interest to readers in design, industry,

govermanetal institution, NGOs as well as researchers.

Chapter 3. Sustainable Product-Service System (S.PSS)

A key contemporary query is the following: within the current social, environmental and economic crisis, which are the opportunities for innovate towards sustainability? Do we know any offer/business model capable of creating (new) value, decoupling it from material and energy consumption? In other words, is there any alternative to significantly reduce the environmental impact of traditional production/consumption systems?

Systemische Notwendigkeit zur Weiterentwicklung von Hybridnetzen

Die Entwicklung des mitteleuropäischen Energiesystems und insbesondere die Weiterentwicklung der Energieinfrastruktur sind konfrontiert mit einer stetig steigenden Diversität an Herausforderungen, aber auch mit einer zunehmenden Komplexität in den Lösungsoptionen. Vor diesem Hintergrund steht die Weiterentwicklung von Hybridnetzen symbolisch für das ganze sich in einer Umbruchsphase befindliche Energiesystem: denn der Notwendigkeit einer Schaffung und Bildung der Hybridnetze aus systemischer und volkswirtschaftlicher Perspektive steht sozusagen eine Komplexitätsfalle gegenüber, mit der die Branche in der Vergangenheit in dieser Intensität nicht konfrontiert war. Jetzt gratis downloaden!
