Ironically none of the Scandinavian or European countries are in the list of large manufacturers of solar modules across the world. The renewable energy market is very important and specially the solar modules, as it is attracting the large number of investments. The importance of availability of huge amount of solar power around the world is also helping to mitigate the climate change issues and providing the solution of electricity generation in a meaningful way.
In my opinion, cost always plays a major role in any kind of investment related to solar modules manufacturing unit. Asian countries due to less labour cost had an upper hand in terms of selling such big units.
