Inclusive, participatory design in energy projects
THE SERVICE VALUE METHOD
For energy access system design
Find out more about the Service Value Method as a tool to help design energy access systems - combining end user needs and aspirations into engineering design in a structured way.
Click below for a step by step guide to the SVM and an online data analysis tool to support implementation.
Feel free to adapt the method to your project, to get in touch with questions and thoughts, and if you've tried it, let me know how it went!
The SVM was developed as part of a PhD in Engineering, and the original research can be found here:
