ITP were engaged to develop a techno-economic simulation model that allow the impacts of changes to the characteristics of PV technology, deployment, financing and incentive policies to be assessed. This enabled the Australian Photovoltaic Institute to review proposals for likely cost impacts and macroeconomic benefits.

These tools can highlight opportunities to improve efficiency or reduce costs, design appropriate incentives to accelerate commercial deployment, and maximise economic benefits to Australia.
