The solar map as a knowledge base for solar energy use

Kanters, Jouri LU ; Wall, Maria LU and Kjellsson, Elisabeth LU (2014) 2nd International Conference on Solar Heating and Cooling for Buildings and Industry, 2013 In Energy Procedia, Proceedings of the 2nd International Conference on Solar Heating and Cooling for Buildings and Industry (SHC 2013) 48. p.1164-1606
Abstract
Our existing urban environment has a significant potential to increase the use of renewable energy, mainly by using solar irradiation for heat and electricity. Quantification of the solar potential by means of a solar map is the first step in the acceleration process for using more solar energy in our urban environments. A solar map is a GIS system providing the annual solar irradiation on building surfaces, mostly accompanied by information of the output of solar thermal or photovoltaic systems. Many solar maps are already in place today; almost all of them are however using different approaches. In this paper, an analysis is done of current solar maps in order to see on which principles the solar maps were based upon.
