Abstract:Based on data from ten European countries for the period 2004 – 2015, the impact of regulatory pressure, normative forces and media presence of social movement organisations (SMO) on innovation performance in the energy storage systems (ESS) industry was assessed. This study theorises that SMO media presence strengthens the positive effect of regulatory pressure through the promotion of technologies. Additionally, a normative force, market-based incentives in this study, exerts isomorphic pressures on the organisational field lowering the diversification, competition and ultimately innovation performance. SMO media presence interferes between normative forces and innovation performance through challenging the taken-for-grantedness in the organisational field by encouraging the development of alternative technologies, thereby, weakening the negative effect of market-based incentives in innovation performance. Through a clustered ordinary least squares regression with robust standard errors, evidence was found for direct effects of SMO ESS media presence and market-based incentives on innovation performance in the ESS industry. Furthermore, evidence was found for a moderating effect of SMO ESS media presence, weakening the negative relation of market-based incentives on innovation performance. The results contribute to institutional and social movement theory.
