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.

SOLAR ATTRACTIVENESS MODEL

The model consists of 4 main sections spread across 10 tabs in an Excel 2007 spreadsheet.

Raw Data

Over 19,000 datapoints assigned to 120 indicators distributed across 26 categories (see below) and 214 geographic entities. All data is fully sourced and referenced.

Controls

Every indicator can be weighted to increase its relative contribution to a scenario. Scoring parameters for indicators are also fully editable to reflect the requirements or sensitivities of any given scenario.

Calculations

Raw data is converted to weighted scores and ultimately to Investment and Solar Attractiveness indices based on the weights and scoring parameters set by the user.

Charts & Analysis

Visual and tabular outputs are built in to explore the scenario outputs from a global, regional, sub-regional and country level. Tables rank countries based on their solar attractiveness indices and XY scatter plot charts with editable axes map out relative positionings of countries at a global, regional and sub-regional level. Individual country reports provide comparative analysis of category scores against other regional and global markets and provide detailed extracts of all 120 Indicators for the country in question. Additional analysis and charting is possible using either the raw data, weighted scores or ultimate Investment and Solar Attractiveness indices – all data is fully accessible and detailed instructions on the location and makeup of the various data forms are provided in the enclosed user guide.

For ease of reference, the 120 indicators are bundled into discrete categories. All raw data, weights, scoring parameters, scores, weighted scores and indices for all 214 geographic entities are fully accessible in the model.
