Energy Product-Service Systems (E-PSS) Toolset

With the Energy Product-Service Systems (E-PSS) Toolset, MEI has developed a comprehensive collection of design guidelines for E-PSS targeting manufacturers that wish to innovate and improve their products and services. For this purpose, MEI has adapted methodological approaches from the scientific PSS community to the specific requirements of rural electrification projects. The workshop targets product and project designers as well as system integrators and distributors in the field of rural electrification in emerging markets. The method has mainly been tested on SMEs located far away from their end-users in industrialized countries, but is easily adaptable to SMEs in developing countries and even to other sectors outside of rural electrification.
