1. Stol, J.W. Energy Independence and its Implications for Bilateral Relations with former Energy Supplying States’ The cases of the United States, Nicaragua, and Germany.

Degree: 2018, Leiden University

This thesis addresses state behavior towards their former energy suppliers after the importing state reaches energy independence. Through chapters on the USA, Nicaragua and Germany I have elaborated on the question; if and why states have changed their level of political cooperation with states who formerly supplied their energy needs? Washington favoring shale oil has caused it to remain tied to its Saudi Arabian, Venezuelan, and Nigerian suppliers through the global oil market. Washington refrains from going it alone versus its former suppliers and simply retracted from these markets, highlighting the limits of independence through shale. Nicaragua is truly independent because Managua switched to a renewable-dominated energy system thereby making it independent from Venezuelan oil supplies, as well as the global oil market. The German chapter highlights a clear correlation with bilateral Russo-German relations and German energy policy, but the Energiewende has not made Germany independent from Russian energy. Advisors/Committee Members: Van der Maat, Eelco (advisor).

2. Hoffmann, Sven Oliver. Business model transformation influenced by Germany's Energiewende : a comparative case study analysis of business model innovation in start-up and incumbent firms.

Degree: Thesis (D.B.A.), 2016, University of Bradford

This thesis investigates the performance of business model innovation (BMI) by incumbent power utility and clean-tech start-up firms influenced by the German Energiewende. It emphasises the factors that impact BMI from a managers’ perspective, examines success factors for managers to overcome BMI challenges, and addresses contingencies to perform BMI in a more structured way. The research is driven by the German Energiewende. It has been chosen as Germany is considered one of the world’s leading markets for renewable energies and a transformation of the power sector is currently underway. Therefore, established power utility firms face severe changes, which have the characteristics of a potential disruption to their business model (BM). At the same time, new players are challenging these incumbents with new BMs. The research is underpinned by the extant literature on BMs and BMI. The research approach is based on two case studies; the incumbent power utility and the clean-tech start-up sector. The qualitative study comprises of 24 semi-structured interviews conducted with top tier managers, from 18 firms, responsible for BMI within these firms. Key findings: This study extends our knowledge of BMI in both a start-up and an incumbent environment that is influenced by various contingent events. It portrays barriers to BMI and depicts critical success factors for BMI that point out solutions on how to overcome these barriers. It provides a structured BMI framework for established firms and illustrates future BM archetypes in this sector. It clearly documents the German Energiewende is regarded as a disruptive threat from the perspective of incumbent power utility managers. The theoretical contribution of this thesis is a process framework including all identified drivers and challenges for BMI in both established and start-up firms. Contributions to practice include critical success factors for BMI, recommendations to overcome barriers to BMI and future BM archetypes within the newly evolving Energiewende industry based on sustainable technologies.
