The SpatialEdge tool provides the state-of art- technology in analysis and assessment of the rooftop.
Governments around the world are increasingly turning to renewable energy to end the dependence on fossil fuels. In many countries, there are mandatory target program in stimulating the uptake of renewable energy. Solar energy, one of the major source of renewable energy, is the cleanest and most abundant source available. Due to improvement of technologies in manufacturing and installation, the solar Photovoltaic cells (PV) are becoming popular in many areas.
The SpatialEdge tool provides the state-of art- technology in analysis and assessment of the rooftop (and vacant land) for their potential for solar PV installation. Specifically, it helps in understanding the total potential (in installable capacity) for solar PV, as well as promising sites for further investigation. The analysis results also supports the comprehensive planning performed for solar Energy Transition Plan being developed in many countries.
Our work in Saint Vincent and other Caribbean island identified the number of available rooftops, accessibility to the road and power grids, and distance away from natural hazards to effectively increase the solar energy work for the islands’ benefit of cheaper energy costs:
