Abstract:
A solar radiation database of Europe has been computed within the GRASS GIS software. The database provides monthly and yearly averages of global irradiation on horizontal and inclined surfaces, as well as climatic parameters needed for an assessment of the potential photovoltaic electricity generation. The database is available on-line by means of a set of dynamic web applications. In the first application, a user may browse solar radiation and other maps and query the selected climatic parameters. The second application provides daily profiles of irradiance for a chosen month and for a selected surface inclination and orientation. The third application provides estimates of solar electricity generation. More information and animations are available at the web site.
