To find out whether the roof of the building is conducive to the installation of solar panels and that even an estimate of electrical power will be possible in Morocco, thanks to the Sun Cadastre, launched in Benguerro, before the generalization of the entire territory of the Kingdom on the horizon at the end of 2019.
Developed by the Institute for Energy and New Energy Research (IRESEN) and the Green Energy Park Benguerir, in collaboration with the Geoscience Laboratory of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, Ain Chock (Casablanca Hassan II University) and the Urban Agency of Kelaa des Sraghna, this project is the first of its kind national and continental level, provides information on the real potential of the photovoltaic system, especially for low-voltage and residential and industrial sectors.
According to IRESEN, this service will be available to the general public as a network login (http://cadastresolaire.iresen.org/). It will be available from next Monday, according to the Institute.
The second region under treatment is the city of Casablanca, whose solar cadastre will end in December 2018, the statement said in a statement, adding that the towns of Marrakech and Rabat would follow it to cover the entire territory of the country. end of horizon 2019.
From now on, public administrations, businesses and individuals can identify, using their simple color code, whether their roofs are suitable for installing solar panels and have an estimate of electricity production, the same source points out, pointing out that the Advanced Search Engine also helps identify high solar energy objects potential.
Solar Cadastre is a cartography of roof structures that can potentially receive photovoltaic installations. This geographic information system (GIS) innovation is an interactive tool that represents photon potential, calculated from algorithms, to simulate average annual radiation (KWh / m² / year) of town and country rooftops.
This algorithm considers several factors, including geographic location, elevation of the study area, gradient and orientation of the site, and the effect of shading of buildings and terrains.
IRESEN is a research institute created in 2011 by the Ministry of Energy, Mines, Water and Environment and several key players in the energy sector in Morocco to support national energy strategy, applied research and development in the field of solar energy and new energies.
