  1. Photovoltaics in Sweden Linus Palmblad Energy technology department +46 16-544 23 37 linus.palmblad@energimyndigheten.se www.swedishenergyagency.se

  2. Vision - Photovoltaics • Established place in the energy system and a common part of the built environment • Successful Swedish PV industry with a strong connection to world class Swedish research

  3. Swedish PV research – small but world class • Ångström Solar Center, Uppsala University • CIGS thin film solar cells • Former world record in cell efficiency • Solibro GmbH (Q-cells), recently started module production

  4. Research is focused on new PV concepts • CIGS, Uppsala University • Dye-sensitised solar cells (Grätzel cells), Uppsala University, Royal Institute of Technology, IVF Swerea • Polymer solar cells, Linköping University, Chalmers, Karlstad University • Low production cost is the basic idea with these technologies

  5. The building as an energy system • Energy and building design at Lund University • Experts on solar technologies in buildings • Concentrating PV/T systems – a Swedish niche (Arontis)

  6. PV education in Sweden • Uppsala University, solar energy course, masters thesis’, PhD course on PV • Umeå University, course on PV for energy system engineers • SERC (Högskolan Dalarna), ESES – European Solar Engineering School (masters programme) • Advanced Vocational Education (Härnösand) - Solar energy technician

  7. PV application and demonstration • SolEl-programmeCo financed by Swedish Energy Agency and the industry • Applied R&D projects • increase the use of PVs in Sweden • develop and demonstrate PV applications • build up and disseminate knowledge

  8. International cooperation – IEA PVPS, www.iea-pvps.org • Collaborative R&D agreement on application of PV electricity • 23 participating counties • Task 1 – exchange and dissemination of information • Task 10 – urban scale PV applications

  9. Swedish PV industry • 5 Module manufacturers (GPV, Arctic Solar, Scanmodule, PV Enterprise, N67) • 1 CIGS cell manufacturer starting up (Midsummer) • 1 CIGS research company (Solibro research) • 1 PV/T concentrator manufacturer starting up (Arontis) • A couple of companies installing PV systems (Switchpower, NAPS, Exoheat, Glacell)

  10. Swedish PV market • Stand alone systems still largest share - summerhouses, boats, lighthouses, telecom, etc. • About 4 MW in stand alone PV systems

  11. Support for installation of PVs in public buildings • From 15 maj 2005 – 31 dec 2008 • 70 % investment support • Rapid growth of grid connected systems • In total about 6 MW installed PV capacity in Sweden today

  12. Issues for the Swedish PV market • Grid connection – no technical barrier but high fees for selling PV electricity • Long term support – predictable, production rewarding, open for everybody

  13. Thank you for your attention!
