Abstract
This project proposes an implementation plan that will contribute to increasing the implementation of solar energy in Sweden. The source of inspiration for this project has been the rapid expansion of the implementation of solar energy in Germany. The reason for this inspiration has been the fact that insolation in Germany is the same as in the most populated areas of Sweden: southern Sweden. Yet the Swedish implementation has been very slow in comparison to the implementation in Germany. The theoretical framework of this project is based on elements of transition theory: the multi-level approach is used as guidance for analyzing the findings of this project such as barriers and drivers for the implementation of solar energy.

This project proposes an implementation plan that will contribute to increasing the implementation of solar energy in Sweden. The source of inspiration for this project has been the rapid expansion of the implementation of solar energy in Germany. The reason for this inspiration has been the fact that insolation in Germany is the same as in the most populated areas of Sweden: southern Sweden. Yet the Swedish implementation has been very slow in comparison to the implementation in Germany. The theoretical framework of this project is based on elements of transition theory: the multi-level approach is used as guidance for analyzing the findings of this project such as barriers and drivers for the implementation of solar energy. The transition management cycle is used as a base for the implementation plan that aims to contribute to increasing the implementation of solar energy in Sweden. Furthermore, the information gathered in this project is based on primary sources in the form of interviews; and secondary sources in the form document analysis. This project identifies the drivers and barriers for the implementation of renewable energy in general (with a focus on Sweden) and for the implementation of solar energy in Sweden. The result of this project has been a completion of its objective: creating an implementation plan, based on the identified barriers and drivers, which can contribute to increasing the implementation of solar energy in Sweden. This plan consists of getting necessary actors to work together; following common objectives through visions, paths, and executing different concrete experiments at various levels of aggregation in society in order to reach these objectives.
