of the solar resource. Thus, accurately depicting the spatial extent and time-dependent characteristics of the solar resource in the United States required alternative methods. To accomplish this the National Solar Radiation Data Base (NSRDB) was developed. This tool made use of the meteorological and cloud cover observations at National Weather.

Solar Energy Forecasting and Resource Assessment is a vital text for solar energy professionals, addressing a critical gap in the core literature of the field. As major barriers to solar energy implementation, such as materials cost and low conversion efficiency, continue to fall, issues of intermittency and reliability have come to the fore.

Solar Resource Assessment Databases, Measurements, Models, and Information Sources. Understanding the Resource.

Like the weather, solar radiation resources vary with geographic location and time. Understanding these spatial and temporal variations is important for addressing key aspects of renewable energy technology development. Solar resource assessment provides the means to accurately determine the availability of solar radiation resources for developing, deploying, and operating cost-effective solar energy technologies per the SunShot goals.

More information on solar resource assessment is available in the Solar Resource section of the High Penetration Solar Portal. Solar Resource Assessment Solar-resource assessment is the characterization of solar irradiance available for energy conversion for a region or specific location over a historical time period of interest.
