Abstract (Swedish)
The renewable energy sector and its industry is becoming an important issue for meeting the electricity demand in the near future. Photovoltaic (solar energy) is on of the fastest growing markets within this renewable energy sector.
This thesis investigates Sweden’s competitiveness in the photovoltaic industry. Sweden’s photovoltaic industry will be compared to the German PV industry, because Germany is one of the leading countries in this sector.
In this case study, Germany should be seen as a benchmark for Sweden. In order to analyse the competitiveness of Sweden and Germany in the photovoltaic industry, I will use the diamond model from Porter. This model includes factors, which are important to create competitive advantage in a... (More)

In this case study, Germany should be seen as a benchmark for Sweden. In order to analyse the competitiveness of Sweden and Germany in the photovoltaic industry, I will use the diamond model from Porter. This model includes factors, which are important to create competitive advantage in a particular industry.
This thesis should provide useful information for the government and companies within this sector about strengths and weaknesses in the photovoltaic industry in Sweden. (Less)
