Economics of Photoelectricity Open Source Spreadsheet

By Paul Gipe

This is an open source spreadsheet on the economics of solar photovoltaics. The spreadsheet contains more than 50 individual tabs covering a multitude of topics beyond the expected cash flow model.

The spreadsheet includes sixteen tables of statistics on the installation of renewable energy technologies worldwide.

There are more than a dozen tables of feed-in tariffs in countries around the world.

The author, who wishes to remain anonymous, has provided this spreadsheet in the public interest. The author seeks comments, suggestions, and criticisms to improve the spreadsheet.

Send comments to Paul Gipe. I’ll forward them to the author. Note that the current version has been converted to *.xls so it’s easier for more people to use.
