INTRODUCTION

Solar Power : Global Market Attractiveness Model provides a standard framework for analysing the potential and relative attractiveness of national-level solar markets around the World and assessing macro conditions, access to market, national energy policy, growth potential of renewable energy and infrastructure considerations.

The model includes both quantitative and qualitative analysis looking both at past trends and the future outlook. It identifies the opportunities for and the risks to solar investments and provides a platform for considering options with a common set of criteria.

The model is fully interactive, enabling users to build an unlimited number of scenarios by both selecting and independently weighting 120 Indicators. Scoring parameters can also be adapted to suit specific situations, development criteria, strategic preferences or sensitivities.

World and Regional views instantly display comparative results for a definable selection of the 214 geographic entities included in the model whilst a Country view enables drill-downs to assess relative strengths and weaknesses and identify specific metrics for each of the 120 Indicators.

The model includes over 19,000 data points across 214 geographic entities.

Additional customisation of the model is also possible, whether involving alternative Indicators or including different analysis views.

Please note : This is delivered as an Excel 2007 file.
