Extending solar potential analysis in buildings to vertical facades
Detection of Roof Shading for PV Based on Lidar Data Using a Multi-Modal Approach
TLDR
A new model was developed which is fast, flexible and accurately models solar radiation and produces attractive shadow maps but is intended for speed and represents an approximation to ray-tracing.
Photovoltaic potential assessment and ranking of rooftops segments based on LiDAR data
TLDR
The proposed method for determining the rating of roofs’ segments in urban areas regarding their suitability for the installation of different photovoltaic (PV) systems was applied over a large urban area scanned by airborne LiDAR, and validated with local power plant, where 96.49% agreement was reached.
The Application of LiDAR to Assessment of Rooftop Solar Photovoltaic Deployment Potential in a Municipal District Unit
TLDR
Drawing conclusions are developed to provide a final methodology to extract the most useful information from the lowest resolution and least comprehensive data to provide solar electric assessments over large areas, which can be adapted anywhere in the world.
An automated model for rooftop PV systems assessment in ArcGIS using LIDAR
As photovoltaic (PV) systems have become less expensive, building rooftops have come to be attractive for local power production. Identifying rooftops suitable for solar energy systems over large
Automated quantification of solar photovoltaic potential in cities
Solar photovoltaic (PV) energy conversion offers a sustainable method of producing electricity to maintain and improve the standard of living within cities. Planning for large-scale adoption of PV in

A New GIS‐based Solar Radiation Model and Its Application to Photovoltaic Assessments
TLDR
Comparing the results of r.sun with the ESRA database demonstrates that integration of the solar radiation model and the spatial interpolation tools in a GIS can be especially helpful for data at higher resolutions and in regions with a lack of ground measurements.
Assessment of Solar Irradiance on the Urban Fabric for the Production of Renewable Energy using LIDAR Data and Image Processing Techniques
TLDR
The authors propose a tool that uses Light Detection and Ranging data to automatically derive solar admittance and solar gains incident on the urban fabric in a fast and accurate way with no need to refer to the construction of complex models of the urban layout.
