Consolidation index for the European airline industry.
As markets internationalize while consolidating, companies have to ask themselves if they can become leaders in these broader international markets. The consolidation index, developed by Burger, is a framework for developing and validating strategies in this regard. The European airline industry has a comparably low level of consolidation with the top 5 airlines having a combined market share of 31 percent in Europe.
This business brief applies the consolidation index to the European airline industry and shows which airlines are in a good position to drive the future consolidation process in this industry.

On the verge of a paradigm shift in the energy sector? From centralized to decentralized energy generation.
Translating IPCC climate models into CO2 emissions per head results in emission targets of 5 percent of today's emission levels for the US and 10 percent for Europe. In an energy environment where externalities like CO2 are priced and where fossil fuels are becoming scarce and more expensive, only a major transformation of the 20th century energy and mobility infrastructure will be able to cope with these climate and fossil fuel scarcity challenges.
With increasing energy prices, energy efficiency and decentralized energy generation will be key ingredients for this energy paradigm shift. Focusing on this paradigm shift, the business brief as a thought experiment intends to: - Identify implications for the value chain, namely the creation of new value-chain segments; - Indicate potential shifts in market size and margin of the respective value-chain segments; - Derive implications for players involved, namely the emergence of a new competitive landscape.
The business brief addresses all energy players involved, especially incumbents who face the challenge to balance the tasks of securing and optimizing traditional business while at the same time taking part in new disruptive innovations.
