A German research company developed a GIS-based system which enables users to identify high potential areas to place solar panels, using laser scanning data. The company is looking for partners to establish a joint venture or distribution services agreement.
A German research company developed a GIS based system which exercises complex location analysis for solar panels of laser scanning data. The offered GIS-based system detects how the use of solar power can be optimized. It has innovative, singular advantages and a high economic potential. There is an enormous field of application possibilities all over the world. To develop these possibilities the German company is looking for business cooperation partners to bring the new system to the international market. This might be done within a joint venture in order to work together on the specific project or a distribution services agreement.
Innovations and advantages
The offered GIS-based system detects how the use of solar power can be optimized. Based on laser scanner data and plan view data it develops a computer aided analysis method to identify high potential areas for the use of solar power. It precisely calculates every roof´s potential as a solar collector by airborne surveying and mapping. Thereby it considers many variable factors as style, orientation, clouding of each roof, seasonal path of the sun across the sky and the shadow cast by a chimney in the course of the day. The result indicates how much energy is possible to produce using solar power all over a certain region or in single households. The system was already successfully applied by German cities. 120 km2 were scanned, 70.000 buildings analysed. The results of the analysis are online available. The inhabitants of the city have the opportunity to check online whether their house is suitable for the use of photovoltaic systems.
