Description

Given the augmented consumption related to increasingly limited resources, power grids based information technology (IT) such as smart grids (SG) are more solicited. Modernization of the electricity sector through SG involves third parties (eg, IT organizations) in the electricity supply chain. Based on information processing theory (IPT), this research aims to contribute to the understanding of the relationship between information processing capabilities, third parties (inter-organizational relationships), information requirements and organizational performance. The results of this research improve scientific knowledge of Information System (IS) by proposing an extension of the IPT taking into account the inter-organizational arrangements brought by the introduction of third parties in the context of SG. Furthermore, these results provide the electricity sector with insights that will help responding to changes due to disruptive technologies such as SG, improving effectiveness of provided services and meeting energy and economic goals pursued by the SG.

Third parties in the context of Smart Grid: information processing theory based approach
