This paper provides a summary of the solar resource information that has been developed to date for the 13 countries participating in the United Nations Environment Programme’s (UNEP’s) Solar and Wind Energy Resource Assessment (SWERA) project. The solar assessments include country-specific maps as well as maps of large regions encompassing these countries. In addition, solar time series and Typical Meteorological Year (TMY) data sets are developed for selected stations within each country…

SPATIAL AND TEMPORAL VARIABILITY IN THE SOLAR RESOURCE: ASSESSING THE VALUE OF SHORT-TERM MEASUREMENTS AT POTENTIAL SOLAR POWER PLANT SITES
The U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is responding to a growing demand for high-accuracy solar resource data with uncertainties significantly lower than those of existing solar
Solar Resource Knowledge Management: A New Task of the International Energy Agency
“Solar Resource Knowledge Management” is a new task approved by the International Energy Agency’s (IEA’s) Solar Heating and Cooling (SHC) Program. The concept for the task was developed over several
Global Irradiation in North-Western South America – A Comparison of Long-Term Datasets of Average Annual Irradiation Taken from Five Different Data Sources
The present paper focuses on long-term average global horizontal irradiation (Ghor), which is of great importance for assessing the average annual generation of grid-connected and/or stand-alone
The influence of cloud cover index on the accuracy of solar irradiance model estimates
SummaryCloud cover index (CCI) obtained from satellite images contains information on cloud amount and their optical thickness. It is the chief climate data for the assessment of solar energy
Which variables are essential for renewable energies?
TLDR
A definition of Essential Renewable Energies Variables is proposed linked with their identification in several domains in renewable energy using a bottom-up and user-driven approach, and spanning over several years of documented interaction with stakeholders.
GRIDDED AEROSOL DATA FOR IMPROVED DIRECT NORMAL IRRADIANCE MODELING: THE CASE OF INDIA
Using point data from ground sites in and around India equipped with sunphotometers, gridded data from either space measurements or models, and gridded data from aerosol climatologies, an improved
GRIDDED AEROSOL OPTICAL DEPTH CLIMATOLOGICAL DATASETS OVER CONTINENTS FOR SOLAR RADIATION MODELING
A methodology for the development of gridded datasets of aerosol optical depth (AOD) over continents is presented. This study focuses on the AOD at 550 nm and the Angstrom turbidity coefficients α
