In recent years the photovoltaic power generation has been consolidated in the world as one of the most promising forms of renewable energy generation. Due to its vast land area and tropical location, Brazil is positioned as one of the countries with the greatest potential for deployment of photovoltaic systems. Besides the favorable physical environment, investments in innovation can generate several benefits for an organization; however, its continuation will depend on a set of assets, such as research and development, introduction of new technologies and training of their team. Thus, this paper presents an instrument proposed for measuring the organizational level of innovation in distributed photovoltaic generation. The instrument features 30 performance indicators grouped into 10 critical success factors fragmented into four points fundamentas view. The construction of the instrument was based on a survey on organizational innovation and photovoltaics. With the implementation of this instrument is intended to generate a current diagnosis of the situation of the evaluated organizations, and support decisions of innovation managers in energy efficiency for the development of solar power generation system in Brazil.
