Abstract [en]

Like many countries around the world, Sweden is experiencing an exponential growth in PV installations, driven largely by building mounted systems. As prosumers become significant actors in the electricity market, questions about how to integrate them technically, economically, and politically are becoming more critical. A recently concluded, three-year research effort dedicated to the techno-economic analysis of PV prosumers has identified some of the major challenges for multi-family housing owners in designing PV systems in light of uncertainty in the market and policies. This paper highlights the primary results and conclusions from the project, including; PV system sizing, strategies for electricity metering to maximize revenues, a Monte Carlo analysis to understand market and policy risks, and several case studies. The overall conclusion is that PV installations can be a profitable investment in Swedish multi-family houses, however it is important to have a roof with good solar resources, a well designed and installed system, and to capture as many available economic support programs as possible. While primarily focused on multi-family houses, much of this work can be used as a practical guide for many Swedish prosumers towards developing practical systems integration solutions and increasing renewable energy usage in buildings.
