Becquerel Sweden has a decade's experience in market issues, both in relation to the international and national PV market. Every year since 2010, we have authored and been responsible for a comprehensive report on the Swedish PV market. This report is used as a basis for the global market reports published by IEA PVPS Task 1. Over the years, a large accumulated knowledge and valuable statistics on market developments have thus been acquired.
Becquerel Sweden has a wide network of contacts, both in the Swedish and international solar cell industry, and has access to unique, detailed and in some cases non-public statistics regarding installation volumes, price development and industry.
Becquerel Sweden offers authorities and other public/institutional organizations statistical collection and market analyses regarding the PV market. Becquerel Sweden also assists other actors with analysis, such as organizations in the solar industry, in the general energy industry or financial investors with an interest in the industry.
Selection of ongoing or completed marketing assignments
|Jan 2011 - ongoing||Swedish represetant in IEA PVPS task 1||Swedish Energy Agency||The International Energy Agency – Photovoltaic Power System Programme (IEA PVPS) is a collaborative research and development agreement within the IEA with 27 Member States working on various aspects of PV technology. Johan Lindahl represents Sweden in the program's task 1 working group, whose task is to analyze and demonstrate developments in the global solar market. Each year, national representatives collect data on installation volumes, price development, manufacturing, support systems and laws within their country and/or region. This data is first published in national reports and then analysed jointly, resulting in market reports on the global PV market.|
|Jan 2020 - Jan 2022||Investigators — Electricity from new installations||Energy research||The aim of the project is to provide an up-to-date summary of the costs of producing electricity using the technology that is commercially available, as well as to account for the factors that affect electricity generation costs. The project is a follow-up and update of a similar project and report from 2014. Becquerel Sweden contributes with general method development, updated costs for photovoltaic technology and writing parts of the report.|
|Apr 2020 - ongoing||Njord, Method development — Customs data analysis||Internal project||At Becquerel Sweden, a problem with a lack of available statistics on market developments in some parts of the world has been identified. Therefore, we are developing a statistical instrument where international trade streams of hardware are analyzed, and then transformed into an estimated installed solar power. It is hoped that the method can be used to analyse market developments in Africa and the Middle East.|
|Oct 2020 - Feb 2021||Project management and execution — Cost structure for typical villa facilities 2020||Energy research||The project Cost structure for Swedish villa facilities examines the Swedish villa segment of the market and presents an updated cost structure. The project was commissioned by Energifors and co-financed by the Swedish Energy Agency.|
