An analysis of 108 companies in terms of their strategies for vertical integration and financial outcomes
Obtaining consumer grid parity and improving the cost competitiveness of large solar power plants are the most ambitious industry goals in the solar PV sector. Drawing on its extensive research and consulting experience in the field of European renewable electricity, LRI has developed a model which describes and analyses these goals and demonstrates how efficiency improvement and cost reduction are driving overall progress towards both.
Through a measurement and the analysis of many factors contributing to the changes in solar PV system efficiencies, the value chain and the current state of government incentives, the relationship between numerous external and internal industry factors is clarified, and a more detailed picture is established of both the current state of the sector and its likely future.

The Asia-Pacific Renewable Electricity Sector: A Country Comparison of Risks and Opportunities The Asia-Pacific region is becoming increasingly important as a driver for world economic growth and as an investment destination. Renewable power is not yet viewed as the solution to rapidly rising energy demand by most governments in the region, however they are increasingly aware of the importance of reducing their dependence on energy imports and of participating in the international effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Renewable energy also represents a low-cost solution to the problem of rural electrification. For these reasons, countries in the region have established legal frameworks to support renewable electricity deployment — both by improving incentives on offer, and by restructuring their power sectors.
This report, similar to London Research International’s pioneering report for 20 European countries, provides a detailed analysis of the renewable electricity sector of 11 key countries in the Asia-Pacific region. Involving a spectrum of geopolitical considerations and market factors, the analysis assigns numerical scores to each country in terms of both risks and opportunities involved in investing in renewable electricity development.
Renewable Electricity Sector Assessment: Ukraine This report gives a comprehensive overview and analysis of the renewable electricity sector in Ukraine. The analysis is provided across six primary indices used to categorise opportunity and risk. There are a further series of sub-indices or measures to provide a comparative value for each of the critical features of the primary indices. For further explanation about the indices, see Our Process.
This report was produced in partnership with the Institute for Energy Saving and Energy Management, National Technical University of Ukraine, Kiev Polytechnic Institute.
Renewable Electricity Incentives in the OECD, China and India 2011/2012: Investment and Operating Support Programmes
Renewable electricity is being deployed ever more rapidly as developed countries recognise both the urgent need to cut GHG emissions and the contribution that renewable energy can make towards energy security. However, the high cost of deployment is such that government incentives will continue to be required.
Incentive schemes have already been established in various countries to attract investor capital and spur development. A major challenge for renewable power developers now lies in identifying which of these incentive schemes offer good value for money and the predictability needed to justify the initial capital outlay.
This report is an authoritative source allowing for quick and easy comparison of the latest incentives on offer for different renewable technologies in the OECD, China and India. Combining key electricity market statistics with an analysis of operating and investment incentives for each country, the report provides comprehensive and concise information regarding the climate for renewable electricity investment.
