This paper presents an innovative methodology to perform market analysis of a new solar power generation technology based on parabolic dish and micro gas turbine engines. Technical, economic, social and political parameters of influence are combined together into a single figure of merit: index of market potential. This index is an original approach enabling the identification of the potential markets for this technology, tackling the inverse problem (from technology to market identification) in lieu of the usual direct problem (determining the interest of a technology in a predefined region).
