Strategies Unlimited partners with former analyst

Features North America

US — Strategies Unlimited, a specialist market research company covering the LED and lighting, lasers, photonics, and photovoltaic industries, has signed a partnership with new startup SPV Market Research.

SPV Market Research has been created by former Strategies Unlimited analyst Paula Mints (pictured). Under the deal, the two companies will collaborate on photovoltaic market research and custom consulting.

This will include quarterly and biannual reports addressing the concerns facing the solar industry and how it will be affected by technologies, suppliers and the economic markets. Strategies Unlimited first began providing photovoltaic market research products in the mid-1970s.

The agencies say that the partnership comes as “globally, the manufacturing side of the solar industry is in the midst of its most significant consolidation while the industry as a whole adjusts to a low incentive environment”.

Mints was most recently a director in the energy division responsible for the solar services programme at Navigant Consulting.
