    Monetary profitability is an objective value essential to the sustainability of a value network. The analysis of this requirement continues to receive substantial attention by the e value research community thus far. However, subjective values such as privacy, security and trust might also play a key role on the configuration of a value network, especially when it is necessary to differentiate equivalent monetary value propositions. This paper describes an ontological proposition for configuring value networks based on subjective values. The ontology is aimed to be used as complement of the e value framework, blending concepts of Multiple Agency Theory, Enterprise Ontology, Value Modeling and Speech Acts Theory. We demonstrate our approach on a case scenario based on the Directive 2009/72/EC, which defines common rules for the liberalization of the European market of energy.
