A new solar radiation data manual is nearing completion by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s (NREL’s) Analytic Studies Division under the Solar Radiation Resource Assessment Project and the Photovoltaic Solar Radiation Research Task. These tasks are funded and monitored by the Photovoltaics Branch of the Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. The new manual is entitled Solar Radiation Data Manual for Flat‐Plate and Concentrating Collectors. For… 
Site-specific solar resource measurements for industrial solar applications
The solar industry can borrow solar radiation measuring equipment from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) as part of NREL`s Solar Industrial Program. This program provides assistance to
Optimum tilt and azimuth for solar collectors in South Africa using measured data
The solar resource in South Africa is among the best in the world. South Africa has seen an increase in local and international investment in solar power. The optimum angles at which a solar
The NREL outdoor accelerated-weathering tracking system and photovoltaic module exposure results
This paper describes the Outdoor Accelerated-weathering Tracking System (OATS) and interim results for the first OATS study on photovoltaic (PV) modules. With two test planes measuring 1.52×1.83 m,
