I recently attended ecoConnect's session on the future of the UK Solar Industry, which featured a panel debate on the effects of proposed changes to the Feed-in-Tariff (FiT) on the the UK solar industry. To help get my head around the rather complex dynamics, I have been creating an online simulation model with a dashboard. The model makes some interesting and counter-intuitive suggestions about where the UK solar industry is headed, and how we can influence the path.

Here is a live on-line simulation model of a hypothetical consumer electronics company, with a dashboard to let you play with it. The model aims to explore the trade-offs between short-term performance and the drivers of longer-term success. One way of looking at these dynamics is that an organization needs to build up and maintain stocks of resources in order to be healthy, a perspective for which system dynamics is very useful.
