Policy Recommendations for the Energy Innovation Ecosystem of Zuid-Holland

Published by orgvue

What participants say needs to change to support Energy Innovation

It was an exciting challenge when the Province of Zuid-Holland asked the team at Concentra Anaytics Europe in mapping out its energy innovation ecosystem. But what recommendations would participants in the ecosystem make?

The theory is that innovation needs the right conditions: the interaction in a ‘triple helix’ model between universities, government, industry (both for-profit and not-for-profit) and with the addition of Finance.

Concentra interviewed more than 100 people from 80 organisations, mapping activity, networks and perceptions across the quadrants, and obtaining new insights into the evolution of the energy ecosystem. We were delighted to publish the final report and also to offer insights from the participants themselves at the launch event.

How do different stakeholders prioritise policy recommendations?

At the event, we fed back improvements suggested by the research participants to the whole crowd, and asked for their ratings to prioritise importance. With both the content and the results crowd-sourced from a group of around 65 experts, we expected some interesting insights. Here are the results:

The responses were slightly dominated by Finance and Business (53% together), with the remaining 47% roughly evenly balanced across the other 3 groups – Knowledge, Government and Not-for-Profit.


The overall results, showed that the top 10 recommendations to the group as a whole were:
