Introduction to the solar med atlas

  1. 1. Solar Atlas for the Mediterranean Final Workshop Under the Patronage of His Excellency Alaa Batayneh, Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources of Jordan Introduction to the Solar Med Atlas Carsten Hoyer-Klick German Aerospace Center Date: December 4th, 2012 Venue: Sheraton Amman Al Nabil Hotel - Amman
  2. 2. Motivation• Solar radiation is the fuel of solar energy. Knowledge about its availability is crucial for the successful development of – Solar energy policies – Solar energy investments• The knowledge on the solar resource is very uncertain in the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean• Information on resources and potentials is essential to trigger developments• Good Basic solar radiation information should be a public good (common investment for everybody’s profit, as e.g. infrastructures).
  3. 3. Objectives• Improve the resource data base by – High resolution solar radiation mapping (GHI + DNI) based on satellite images – Use of open and transparent state of the art algorithms – Transparent validation of the data base – Free access to monthly values• Improve access by – Open system architecture based on internet standards – Easy to use web interface – Downloadable data (monthly time series and maps) – Web applications for data analysis – Linking ancillary information (Socio-Economic, GIS data)• Improve the knowledge data base for solar energy policy making and investments
  4. 4. Project Consortium German Aerospace Center, Institute of Technical Thermodynamics, GeoModel Solar Department of Systems- Analysis and Technology Assessment (Coordinator) German Remote Sensing Data United Nations Environmental Center Programme, Division of Technology, Industry and Armines / Mines-ParisTech, Economics Centre Énergétique et Procédés OME, Observatoire Méditerranéen de l’Energie Transvalor RCREEE Regional Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency

  7. 7. The Value Adding Dilemma of Geo Data Data gap which needs to be filled high Cost / Effort low Information products Applications / Basic geo data Decision Support Analysis ToolsScientific resource data GIS Applications, Potentials Analysis, Scenarios, Consulting Interfaces to modelslow Value high Source: Micus GmbH (2003): Der Markt für Geoinformationen: Potenziale für Beschäftigung, Innovation und Wertschöpfung, Studie für das Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Arbeit, www.micus.de
  8. 8. Way-out from the Value Adding DilemmaTwo possible options:1. Set up an integrated value adding chain: Earn the money on the rightend side and transfer it to the left. – Chicken and egg problem: Where to get the initial money from? – Needs integrated chain (best in one hand) to make the transfer2. Make the left side a public good. Easy and free access eases market entry for small companies which leads to rapid market developent – The “egg” comes from the government – The developing market creates tax revenues (new “eggs”).CEM/IRENA Global
  9. 9. Current Status of Resource Information• Coarse public data sets of unknown quality – Reanalysis data – NASA SEE (100 km) – PVGIS (only global horizontal radiation)• Few regional assessments – Often by interpolation of ground measurements – Only global horizontal radiation – Sometimes hard to access (e.g. only color maps in printed presentations)
  10. 10. Objectives of the Solar-Med-Atlas• Improve the resource data base by – High resolution solar radiation mapping (GHI + DNI) based on satellite images – Use of open and transparent state of the art algorithms – Transparent validation of the data base – Free access to monthly values• Improve access by – Open system architecture based on internet standards – Easy to use web interface – Downloadable data (monthly time series and maps) – Web applications for data analysis – Linking ancillary information (Socio-Economic, GIS data)• Improve the knowledge data base for solar energy policy making and investments
  11. 11. Networking with Collaborative Information Systems Solar data resources A (e.g. DLR) provider Data broker Solar data resources B (e.g. user interface provider Mines-ParisTech) data geographical data, land use, data infrastructure, provider providerCommunication with open e.g. public agenciesand standardized internetprotocols Policy data base set up of the architecture within e.g. IEA, UNEP, REN21 the framework of GEOSS
  12. 12. User Interface Google API: Easy to use Information tabs, applications Basic socio Site selection, read economic average values information
  13. 13. Solar data
  14. 14. Interannual variability
  15. 15. PV Simulation
  16. 16. Solar Hot Water Simulation
  17. 17. WEB-GIS
  18. 18. Outlook: Global Atlas forSolar- and Wind Energy
  19. 19. Upcoming• More training, multi day workshops, train the trainer• Dynamic socio economic profiles• Off-Grid PV systems• Integration into the Global Atlas
  20. 20. Thank you• The project consortium, which did all this work• The German International Climate Initiative which supported this work• RCREEE + OME for organizing this workshop
