Becquerel Sweden provides strategic advice, documentation and research regarding the market, industry and regulations in both the Swedish and international solar PV industries. We assist companies, authorities as well as other public and institutional organisations.
Tekn. Dr. Johan Lindahl
firstname.lastname@example.org, 0768-511 773
Johan Lindahl has extensive experience of market and regulatory issues concerning the photovoltaic market, both at national and international level. Partly as Secretary General of the European Solar Manufacturing Council and partly from the work as Swedish representative in the international organization IEA PVPS for ten years, where the national experts compile the annual changes in installation volumes, price development and regulations at national level and together analyze the global trends. But also from the previous role as the industry organization Swedish Solar Energy's spokesperson with responsibility for the association's advocacy work, investigations, consultation responses, statistics and advocacy towards politicians, media, authorities and various industry players.
Johan also holds a PhD in thin film solar cells of the type CIGS from Uppsala University, and from there knowledge in solid state physics/chemistry, thin film deposit with different vacuum methods, material characterization and electrical measurements of solar cell structures.
Amelia Oller Westerberg
email@example.com, 0730-667 126
Amelia has been working with us since 2020 when she wrote her thesis for the master's program in Energy Systems at Uppsala University at Becquerel Sweden. In this, a calculation model was developed to estimate installed PV volumes in markets where such statistics are lacking. Since then, Amelia has been working on compiling data and analyzing the Swedish PV market for Becquerel Sweden in the IEA PVPS since 2019 and took over the Swedish representation in 2023. In addition, she has experience in the European PV manufacturing industry through her role as a market analyst at the European Solar Manufacturing Council and has experience in designing PV installations on industrial roofs, independent regulatory analysis and student supervision.
During her studies, she was named one of 2019's 33 sustainability talents under 33 and Sweden's Climate Smartest Student 2019 as co-founder of Vegansk Matlåda - one of Sweden's largest social media accounts within sustainable eating and living and author of the book of the same name. In addition to her background in energy systems, Amelia has extensive experience in lecturing and digital communication.
Robert has a background as a Master of Science in Engineering Physics from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH). He has extensive experience in system development and has, among other things, been involved in developing eye control systems at Tobii. Since then, he has mostly worked with building web solutions and apps, including a course management system used in education in sustainable development.
At Becquerel Sweden, Robert is working on a project to detect PV installations from aerial photos and a project to calculate the optimal angle of PV parks for different locations in the Nordic region.
Lisa is working with us since spring 2023 when she wrote her thesis in the civil engineering program STS at Uppsala University. In the work, a calculation model was validated for the simulation of historical solar electricity production, which takes into account the individual orientation of solar cell systems and local weather conditions. The model was then further developed to simulate aggregated solar electricity production from distributed systems within an entire municipality. The results of the work have also been presented and published in connection with the international conference EU PVSEC 2023.
Lisa has a technical profile towards IT, with a particular interest in AI and machine learning. Today she works in a project at Becquerel Sweden with modeling of aggregated solar electricity production in larger geographical areas.
