The SiriusDecisions B-to-B Buying Decision Process Framework

July 8, 2019

Decisionmaking is a cognitive process defined by psychologists as the selection of a course of action from multiple alternatives (e.g. what to eat, where to shop). John Dewey, the pragmatic philosopher and psychologist, introduced the first decision process framework for consumer buying in his book How We Think, which was published in 1910. Since then, Dewey’s framework has been adapted many times, but the five basic stages of consumer decisions remain the same: problem/need recognition, information search, evaluation of alternatives, purchase decision and post-purchase behavior.

Transitioning Industrial Clusters towards Net Zero: National Policy Enablement for Industrial Decarbonization

whitePaper | October 11, 2022

As nations worldwide continue to develop and industrialize at a pace never before seen, the demand for products like cement, chemicals, coal, oil and gas, and steel – or their substitutes – is rapidly growing. Often these hard-to-abate sectors are geographically co-located in so-called industrial clusters, hubs or zones. To address an urgent need for scaled decarbonization in these industries, strong policy support is needed with a particular focus on the transition of these CO2 -emitting industrial areas across all nations, independent of industry mix or development stage.

How Microgrids Contribute to the Energy Transition

whitePaper | January 20, 2023

Executive summary In the early 20th century, the centralization of electricity production made huge pro- gress, enabling significant economies of scale and improved power plant efficiency. Today, decentralization could help tackle the energy challenges of the 21st century by creating an optimized way to access reliable, green, and resilient energy. Microgrids are the emerging energy eco- system that provides practical answers through a local, interconnected energy system within clearly defined electrical boundaries, which incorporate loads, de- centralized energy resources, battery stor- age, and control capabilities

A Sustainable Vision For A Productive Future

whitePaper | January 20, 2020

Few industries impact global economic livelihood, societal functioning, and quality of life as significantly as the energy industry. Few industries face as many challenges. A number of daunting factors are again leading many inside and outside the energy industry to embrace renewable energy as a solution—or, perhaps, more accurately—a critical piece of the solution. Renewable energy sources are making inroads in our national energy mix, and that progress is likely to continue. It’s not a matter of whether the renewable energy market will grow, it’s how fast and by how much.

Decarbonizing practices in the global automotive industry

whitePaper | September 29, 2022

This whitepaper examines the current state and trajectory of decarbonization within the global automotive industry. By examining and establishing a baseline on industry action, early- mid- and long-term initiatives can be highlighted to help inform manufacturers and producers how they can engage and push themselves further towards full decarbonization. This effort also highlights the challenges and complexities in the path towards decarbonization, which is complex and layered. Industrial producers should be looking outwards to determine how to take best steps from within.
