Spatial insolation models for photovoltaic energy in Canada

McKenney, Daniel; Pelland, Sophie; Poissant, Yves; Morris, Robert; Hutchinson, Michael; Papadopol, Pia; Lawrence, Kevin; Campbell, Kathy


Spatial models of global insolation and photovoltaic electricity generation potential for Canada were developed. The main objective was to provide Canadians with an easily accessible, reliable tool for rapidly estimating the monthly and yearly electricity production potential of grid-connected photovoltaic systems anywhere in the country, and for assessing the dependence of production on location, time of year and array orientation. Monthly mean daily insolation data from 144 meteorological...[Show more]
