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.
