Short description: Based on the information automatically read from a regional GIS (DORIS interMAP), such as the coordinates of buildings/roof areas, a PV yield forecast for each location is automatically created with the help of the voibos web services and the data available there (sunset, solar radiation, etc.).
Market potential: For a more systematic development of regional PV markets, this software could make a crucial contribution, also in advancing Renewable Energy Communities (REC).
Timing: Due to the need of energy transition, the booming solar market and the new renewable energy communities – the sooner the better!
Desired result: The challenge owner is a regional energy agency which supports municipalities and local businesses in the energy transition. It would be useful to have a tool that easily provides information on potentials and already used roof surfaces for solar energy in specific locations.
Information on challenge owner: Regional Energy Agency.
