Solar Energy:Three Technologies – One Source
  • Solar Electricity
  • Solar Thermal
  • Passive Solar
solar power solar heat or solar energy
Solar Power, Solar Heat or Solar Energy?
  • Green heat and green power are both important
  • Load displacement is just as important as new generation
  • All solar technologies are part of the solution

Benefits of the CanSIA’s “25 by 25” Program
  • A minimum of 25 million megawatt-hoursper year of renewable solar electrical andthermal energy.
  • $30 to $40 billion of economic activity forCanadians.
  • 60,000 – 70,000 high quality jobs in thesolar industry.
  • 120,000 – 210,000 other jobs as a directresult of solar activities.
  • 15 –30 million tonnes of greenhouse gasemission reductions annually.

socioeconomic potential
Socioeconomic Potential
  • Barriers
  • Policies
  • Strategies
socioeconomic potential barriers for customers
Socioeconomic Potential:Barriers for Customers
  • Bad economic performance: high investment costs are the most visible barrier to PV
  • There is a lack of proper financing opportunities
  • Architectural design and simple standardised systems are not available
  • Uncertainty on the technical performance
  • Lack of information on the benefits of PV

Source: IEA-PVPS T7-06:2002

socioeconomic potential barriers for society
Socioeconomic Potential:Barriers for Society
  • Environmental benefits are not rewarded
  • Lack of awareness with respect to scarce fossil and nuclear resources
  • Customers willingness to pay is not exhausted
  • Low social acceptance
  • Distortions in public education

Source: IEA-PVPS T7-06:2002

socioeconomic potential barriers for solar industries
Socioeconomic Potential:Barriers for Solar Industries
  • The PV suppliers do not know the potential market and they do not know how to reach the market
  • There is lack of proper marketing strategies and a lack of adequate infrastructure for successfully marketing PV systems
  • Communication problems between different actors in the market (e.g. between architects, building companies and PV retailers) do still widely exist

Source: IEA-PVPS T7-06:2002

socioeconomic potential policies
Socioeconomic Potential:Policies
  • Net Metering
  • Feed-in Tariffs (Energy-Based Production Incentives)
  • Long Term Financing
  • Purchase/Installation Incentives
socioeconomic potential costs
Socioeconomic Potential : Costs
  • Solar as a distributed energy source is unique
  • Costs of Central Power Plants are amortized over 20-40 years
  • Other nations level the playing field by offering long term loans with interest rate subsidies
  • (In the US – over 80 solar loan programs in place)

CanSIA’s Standard Offers Contract for PV ProgramObjectives

  • To demonstrate government support for solar at a meaningful level (it will bring new private investment into the solar industry).
  • To help bridge the inequality of government support for other energy sources with its support for solar.
  • To stimulate the market for “grid-connected” PV in a manner that allows the industry to grow sustainably.
