Poster maps for solar energy community

Solar Energy - main image

High quality and detailed poster-size maps (formats B1 to B0) for the solar energy community.

Maps of Solar radiation (e.g. Global horizontal irradiation, Direct normal irradiation), PV electricity potential and Air temperature are available for various countries or regions the world.

These sets of maps for each country or region represent unique cartographic information useful as a valuable working tool for any solar energy company.

Features

  • Source of data is SolarGIS database - evaluated as the best performing solar database on the market
  • High resolution of the data (typically 250 m) calculated by new algorithms and detailed Digital Elevation Model
  • All information is based on our own data and simulation tools
  • Enhanced color legend shows many spatial details
  • Professional cartographic quality, good readability, with detailed support topographic information (city shapes, road network, administrative boundaries, water bodies, etc.)
  • Explanatory text informing how to interpret the map content

Benefits

  • Ideal tool for pre-feasibility studies, and preliminary site qualification
  • High self-presentational impact: low investment with high added value
  • Bilingual: national plus English (on request)
  • Maps are complementary to SolarGIS, the online interactive portal for solar energy

GLOBAL HORIZONTAL IRRADIATION
  • Reference information on solar resource in the country suitable for preliminary decisions related to solar technologies

SolarGIS - Solar maps - Global horizontal irradiation (GHI) - France


DIRECT NORMAL IRRADIATION
  • Reference document for preliminary decisions about sitting of CSP and CPV technologies

SolarGIS - Solar maps - Direct normal irradiation (DNI) - South Africa

SOLAR RESOURCE AND PHOTOVOLTAIC POTENTIAL
  • PV power potential assuming various types of used technology (c-Si, CdTe or CIS/CIGS) for various mounting systems (inclined free standing, roof-mounted, tracking systems, etc.)

SolarGIS - Solar maps - Photovoltaic potential (PV) - Turkey


AIR TEMPERATURE
  • Cartographic representation of the unique high resolution database first time on the market
