http://www.reportlinker.com/p01650919/Most-Attractive-Solar-Markets-in-Europe.html#utm_source=prnewswire&utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=Renewable_energy

The Most Attractive Solar Markets in Europe provides a comparative framework for analysing the potential and relative attractiveness of national-level solar markets in Europe and for assessing macro conditions, access to market, national energy policy, growth potential of renewable power and infrastructure considerations.

Based on a comprehensive quantitative and qualitative model with over 19,000 data points across 214 geographic entities, the factsheets help identify the opportunities for and the risks to solar investments on a regional and individual country basis and provide a platform for considering options with a common set of criteria.

In 2012, total installed solar power capacity across Europe reached 69,491.0 MW from 28 countries, representing 70.09% of total World installed solar capacity. The largest solar market was Germany with 32,643.0 MW or 46.97% of total regional solar capacity.

The top 3 markets for installed solar capacity in Europe were Germany, Italy and Spain. The aggregated regional installed capacity represented 6.5% of total (conventional + renewable) installed capacity and 18% of renewable (biomass + geothermal + hydro + solar + wind) capacity.

The forecast for total installed solar capacity in Europe in 2017 is 125,777 MW with solar expected to be the third largest renewable sector regionally.

"Most Attractive Solar Markets in Europe" provides a detailed analysis of solar power capacity and the generation of electricity from solar in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the United Kingdom, using the latest available data. Coverage includes installed and added volumes; shares of total, renewable and non-hydro renewable power sources; growth rates against other renewable power sectors and forecasts to 2017. All from a national, regional and global perspective with comparisons to other leading markets regionally and worldwide.

The factsheets also provide country level data and regional / World comparisons for 102 different Market and Business Attractiveness variables split amongst 16 categories. Market Attractiveness considers the relative merits of the renewable and solar sectors in the top markets in Europe based on power capacity and generation trends and specific solar related variables. Business Attractiveness considers how safe, easy and practical it is to invest in the power market of Europe by considering macro-economic, access to market and operating environment issues.

Part of the renewablefacts.com factsheet series, this report can be reviewed against others in the series to compare sector and country performance and put trends into global perspective.

In 2012, total installed solar power capacity across Europe reached 69,491.0 MW from 28 countries, representing 70.09% of total World installed solar capacity. The largest solar market was Germany with 32,643.0 MW or 46.97% of total regional solar capacity.

ABOUT ATTRACTIVENESS

The relative attractiveness of a country is considered from both the perspective of trends in a country's power markets (Market Attractiveness) and the investment environment (Business Attractiveness).

Market Attractiveness considers the relative merits of the renewable and solar sectors in the top markets in Europe based on power capacity and generation trends and specific solar related variables.

Business Attractiveness considers how safe, easy and practical it is to invest in the power market of Europe by considering macro-economic, access to market and operating environment issues.

Countries are scored relative to other countries in the same region and across the World. The factsheets include comparisons with other countries and regions on a variety of variables.
