Regional solar energy potential study Solar potential knowledge base for strategic decision making Solar power technology is weather dependent. A thorough understanding of climate of a region is a good starting point for strategic decisions relating to development of solar projects.
A generic solar resource map may not show a complete picture. A detailed analysis of solar resource, meteorological, geographic data and PV power potential help identification of the most suitable locations for deployment of solar power plants.
The analysis considers uncertainty of resource estimates, occurrence of extreme climatic conditions, seasonal climate variability, as well as geographic limitations on deployment of solar plants.
Regional solar energy potential study is a base for defining strategies made by governments, investors and project developers. Key outputs of the solar energy potential study Solar resource Solargis modelled solar radiation data is used as primary source for analysis of solar energy potential.
Locally available measurements are also incorporated in the analysis. Besides identification of regions with highest solar potential, seasonal and inter-annual variability of solar resource is also analyzed.
This helps to understand how seasonal power generation matches well with the demand. The study identifies regions where year-by-year power generation variability is lower, resulting in a more stable cash flows.
Uncertainty of solar resource estimates are quantified to enable technically-sound analysis Climate conditions Weather conditions define operating environment for solar power plants.
Data from meteorological models are used to identify characteristics of regional climate. Geographical constraints an opportunities Geographic information data and maps give additional value to the solar information.
Geographic characteristics of a region or particular location create technical and environmental constraints or prerequisites for development of a solar power plant. Geographic parameters analysed include terrain, population and accessibility, demand centres energy needs: PV electricity potential PV power generation potential for the region is calculated using in-house simulation algorithms.
For assisting with choice of technology, PV electricity generation maps are created for multiple options, i. Useful data such as optimum tilt angle for fixed mounted PV systems is also calculated.In the China Residential Solar Energy Storage System Industry Market Analysis & Forecast , the revenue is valued at USD XX million in and is expected to reach USD XX million by the end of , growing at a CAGR of XX% between and Nov.
