Annual Report 2016

METHODOLOGY To gather the data found in this survey, e-questionnaires were sent in June 2016 to 1,161 companies with an active profile on the AmÊrica do Sol Program’s Map of Companies in the Photovoltaic Sector (www.americadosol. org/fornecedores). The questionnaire remained available for response for 34 days. Of all the companies to which it was sent, 604 (52%) started to answer and 323 (28%) answered all the questions. Only answers from companies who completed the entire questionnaire were valid for this study. Each year the questionnaire is improved in order to make questions clearer and meet the demands arising from the Brazilian market development. However, most questions are the same so data can be compared with those from previous editions, thus establishing trends in the Brazilian photovoltaic market development. For the previous edition, all respondent companies accessed the same questions. This time, access to questions was segmented according to each company’s role in the PV solar energy value chain (equipment installer, designer, or manufacturer/retailer), which respondents informed upon starting to answer the questions. From data segmented for different market players, it is possible to draw a more complete picture of the Brazilian distributed solar generation market.
