Solar GIS Layers

GeoSUN Africa provides the following solar maps to be used with GIS software:

  • Global Horizontal Irradiation (GHI) [Photovoltaics (PV), Solar Water Heaters (SWH), Architecture, Agriculture]
  • Direct Normal Irradiance (Concentrating Solar Power (CSP), Concentrated Photovoltaic (CPV)]
  • Global Tilt Irradiation (GTI) optimally inclined [Photovoltaics (PV), Solar Water Heating (SWH), Architecture]
  • Photovoltaic Yield [Photovoltaics (PV)]

Spatial resolutions up to 250 x 250 m on annual or monthly averages are supplied on request. Maps are based on 12 or 18 year averages.
