Abstract [en]

This master thesis was handed out by Miljöbron 2011 and the thesis has been carried out at Small scale Renewable Energy (SSRE) which is a newly launched company in Tidaholm, Sweden. SSRE offers small scale solutions for green energy solutions, wind turbines and solar panels, targeting private individuals and small enterprises. The purpose with the report is to, with the help of scenarios, present information to SSRE before they design their supply chain for a future expansion. This report will look into one of SSRE’s products, the VT which is a wind turbine consisting of basically three parts; frame, wings and generator. Interviews have been carried out in order to establish concrete and qualitative information. Two markets have been researched; United Kingdom and Mexico. These markets are actual markets for SSRE with a future expansion because of previous/present requests from these countries. The report has been carried out in a way that different scenarios became created for give SSRE help on deciding how their supply chain could look like and/or if they should start their production in respectively country. Today the supply chain is consisting of basically two parts SSRE themselves, producing wings and generator, and Mechanical Production Company (MPC) that are producing the frame also located in Tidaholm. SSRE don’t want to be produces and with the help of the different scenarios they can decide how to make changes in the chain in a good manner. Results between the UK and Sweden scenarios were not that different, while the difference was bigger compared with Mexico. The generator part could become a bottleneck when high cost almost forces the production to be located in China. Conclusions made are that with the small differences in some of the scenarios it is recommended for the two markets keeping production in Sweden for the UK and further research the opportunity in having production in Mexico.
