Solar Flare Executive Reports: Latest Global Trends, Supply & Market Data and Technology Development

Analysis and insight into current and long term solar industry market, manufacturers and incentive trends

Show All Description Contents, Table & Figures List Pricing Related Content
The Solar Flare Executive Report Series, published bimonthly in February, April, June, August, October and December provides a current analysis of the demand and supply sides of the terrestrial photovoltaic industry as well as offering updates and analysis about demand for concentrator PV and crystalline silicon and thin film PV technologies.
The global market for solar technologies remains volatile and reliant on incentives. The 25 to 50 page Solar Flare analyzes current market behavior and includes current data on module and component prices, changes in incentives and market size so that the reader can adjust strategy before a direction becomes too entrenched.
Global macro and micro economic trends are assessed in light of how this could affect demand for solar installations. Demand side business models and trends in system sizes and profitability are analyzed with a view of their short and long-term potential effect on activity and profitability. Coverage of important conferences, for example, the IEEE PVSC, the EU PVSEC, Intersolar Munich, Intersolar US, Printed Electronics and Solar Power International are provided to keep subscribers informed of current trends and industry direction.
Let us keep you updated with the topic with this balanced, fact based regular report series conducted by analysts based globally.
