Abstract:It is difficult to indicate the value of innovations especially in emerging technology fields, like transportation and energy production. Yet for the organisations involved in working on innovations, it is crucial to have insight in this future value of innovations. What complicates its emergence are the multiple and uncontrollable factors that have influence on the innovation. To analyse the emerging technology the involvement of all stakeholders needs to be taken in account. Stakeholders play a role in many innovation theories, however the role of stakeholders is not covered in depth. Since the introduction of electric vehicles, many researchers and organisations looked into the appealing idea to use electric vehicles to support the grid. The integration of the storage capacity, of batteries in electric vehicles, into the power grid could have several benefits. Electric vehicle integration technology is already emerging, for example smart charging and vehicle-to-grid (V2G). This research helps innovating organisations such as Locamation in the strategic decision making process about whether or not to invest or further research the electric vehicle integration technology field through an extensive stakeholder analysis.
