The model is fully interactive and comes complete with a detailed user guide. Irrespective of users' experience with Excel, complex scenarios can be built and reviewed quickly and easily and customisation (either by advanced Excel users or on request from Energici Holdings Inc) is possible.
SOLAR ATTRACTIVENESS MODEL
The model consists of 4 main sections spread across 10 tabs in an Excel 2007 spreadsheet.
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.
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.
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.
