Abstract [en]

Promotion on energy efficiency and innovation is in the agenda of many countries as seen in Europe 2020 strategy. Although these two concepts have been addressed extensively in theory and practice, so far there has been little discussion about connecting their research streams. This paper proposes to close this gap and explores whether a novel approach to foster industrial energy efficiency in SMEs may include adopting Open Innovation. To evaluate the possible influence of open innovation practices on energy efficiency we consider a significant sample of SMEs in energy-intensive industries such as foundries. To measure both concepts we use a mix of scales taken from literature and practice from both fields. We expect to find similar results as seen in our pilot case studies, such as a higher number of inbound practices that reduce technology-related barriers to energy efficiency, as well as, different adoption rates of energy-efficient technologies by commodity.
