Solar Media, the publisher of Solar Power Portal, has launched a new market intelligence unit, designed specifically for companies active in the solar industry. New offerings will include comprehensive data-sets, insightful market analysis, and direct access to in-house experts to discuss industry trends.

The new Solar Intelligence division will work directly alongside Solar Power Portal and its international sister site PV Tech, exploiting the wealth of market knowledge accumulated at Solar Media in recent years. Complementing this will be new market research activities and methodologies to provide intelligence to a broad range of stakeholders, from large multinationals to small regional installers.

“Through our established publishing and events activities in the sector, Solar Media engages with thousands of companies each year,” said Tim Mann, managing director, Solar Media. “Recently, a recurring theme in our discussions has been the pressing need for more accurate, timely and relevant market data, to help companies make successful business decisions.”

The immediate focus of the Solar Intelligence division will be the UK solar industry, currently the strongest market in Europe, with a growing pipeline of opportunities across the residential, commercial and utility segments. As the leading provider of media coverage, conferences and exhibitions to the UK industry, Solar Media is uniquely placed to fill the gap in the market for quality UK solar intelligence.
