Sweden: High Internal Rates of Return Attract Investors

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on May 28, 2014
Absolicon CalculatorSwedish company Absolicon Solar Concentrator has developed a Solar Energy Calculator to enable commercial clients to determine the Internal Rate of Return (IRR) when purchasing and operating solar thermal systems with collector areas of between 500 and 5,000 m². “We were influenced by the PV sector, where customers are much more used to assessing solar investments based on the cash flow over the economic life of the system than based on the payback period,” CEO Joakim Byström explains. Byström founded Absolicon, a producer of concentrating process heat collectors. According to Byström’s experiences, many projects with long payback periods fare much better if you calculate the IRR. The Solar Energy Calculator, which is available online on the company´s website, has already been used by 70 potential clients from all around the world over the last 10 months.
