Providing tenants with solar electricity
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
In later years the interest for solar cells has increased in Sweden. Even so, the attractiveness to integrate solar cells to buildings becomes attenuated due to regulations and taxes, which complicate the process. Ihus is a company owned by Uppsala Municipality in Sweden who has chosen to invest in solar cells that are integrated to their facility at Bolandsgatan 10, where they are leasing out locales to other companies. Their aim with the solar cells is to distribute electricity to their tenants without becoming professional electricity suppliers. This study simulates the solar cell electricity demand and supply at Bolandsgatan 10 and analyses the interest and regulations regarding solar cell integration. The result shows that using solar cells not only is an excellent choice of green energy but it would also be economical beneficial for the tenants. To show how solar cell electricity could be allocated, four alternative solutions have been developed. Furthermore, this report shows that tax regulations have to adapt to fit in with the development of solar cells in order to encourage the usage of solar cells in the future.
