Refurbishment can extend the lifetime of an electronic product and reduce its environmental footprint. However, consumers often perceive refurbished electronics as less attractive than new ones, resulting in lower purchase intentions. While prior research has identified several factors that influence consumer choices regarding refurbished...

In the Netherlands, a big move towards electrification has been underway for decades, while the share of renewable energy in the Dutch energy mix is increasing. Grid capacity issues and the intermittency inherent to renewables require intelligent solutions, one of which may be V2G. V2G allows for bi-directional flows of energy between an EV and...

The circular economy can reduce the environmental footprint of today’s consumption and close the resource loop through circular material flows. Companies are encouraged to fol- low circular principles, such as using more recycled plastic materials. This initiative seems promising; however, it will only be successful if consumers are willing to...

The objective of this study is to identify factors that influence actual electric vehicle (EV) drivers’ acceptance of Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) charging. The study takes a qualitative approach in order to provide insight into actual EV users’ perceptions of V2G technology and their underlying motivation to accept or not accept V2G. The Theory of...

The prior use and age make refurbished products a less desirable option because they are perceived to be of lower quality, to have a reduced performance and a less attractive appearance. This research investigates one strategy on how to enhance the appearance of refurbished products and thereby encourage circular consumption via refurbishment...

Access-based product-service systems (AB-PSS) have the potential to lower environmental impacts. Currently, a lack of consumer acceptance and, consequently, low adoption levels of AB-PSS are challenges preventing the realisation of their sustainability potential. This study proposes temporary product customisation to lower barriers for the...

Value creation in a circular economy is based on products being returned after use. In the case of smartphones, most are never returned and tend to be kept in drawers. Smartphone access services (e.g., leasing or upgrade) have been experimented with in the Netherlands but have been largely unsuccessful. This study explores the reasons why...

Within the context of today’s linear economy refurbishment constitutes a promising strategy in recovering critical resources. However, the value of refurbishment is currently explored only within specific product categories. This graduation assignment aims to provide insights into the factors affecting consumer acceptance of different product...

The world population is growing rapidly and guaranteeing future food security is going to be one of the challenges of the future. Current food sources that provide a complete amino acid profile include meat and various meat-products. However, these often have a high negative impact on the environment and cost a lot of resources to produce. We...

Previous studies showed that the consumer acceptance of refurbished products is not optimal. This experimental quantitative study investigates three potential ways to influence the consumer acceptance, being the existence of wear and tear on the product, providing additional information about the previous use or providing additional information...

Now the detrimental consequences of human consumption become apparent, companies search for ways to extend the product life cycle. Refurbishment is an accessible and cost-effective strategy to regain value from used products and contributes to a more circular consumption model. Driven by a growing commercial interest in refurbishment, this...

People take time to explore pros and cons of a new technology. Since the biofeedback technology is a relatively state-of-the-art technology, the public do not know a lot about biofeedback technology. So it is important to understand the user acceptance of this technology in the market. In order to develop successful biofeedback products, it is...
