Success factors and barriers of innovative projects. An innovation biiography on the innovative project We Drive Solar in Utrecht
V2G is a pioneer technology which allows an electrical vehicle to charge its battery, but also allows it to discharge its energy back to the grid for other use. This back and forth traffic of electrical power to and from a car battery is referred to as bidirectional charging. This new technology was developed as part of a previous solar panel project known as Smart Solar Charging, and stems from the fibre optic internet company LomboXnet, which in essence is the starting point of the whole development process of We Drive Solar. The Policy Arrangement Approach (PAA) is applied to the case in order to analyse the most important actors, resources, rules and discourses involved. Each dimension pertains certain success factors and barriers that either speed up the innovative process or pose possible challenges. This is illustrated through an innovation biography of the case We Drive Solar.
