A model for how much energy photovoltaic (PV) systems produce worldwide has been developed by researchers at Aarhus University.
The researchers collected 38 years of global solar radiation, weather, and temperature data for the entire globe, and compared this with historical data for PV installations in Europe. For every European country, four different PV configurations (rooftop, optimum tilt, tracking, and delta) were investigated. To obtain PV time series, the researchers converted irradiance from a climate forecast system reanalysis data set into electricity generation and aggregated the data at the country level. Prior to conversion, reanalysis irradiance was bias corrected using satellite-based data and a globally applicable…READ MORE
