Technical Description

The datasets included in this collection represents an output from the Solargis global solar and PV models. It includes global long term average of daily totals of potential photovoltaic electricity production (PVOUT) in kWh/kWp, covering the period from 1994/1999/2007 (depending on the region) to 2022.

It has been delivered for the Global Solar Atlas (https://globalsolaratlas.info/), an online platform funded by the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP), a multi-donor trust fund administered by The World Bank, under a global initiative on Renewable Energy Resource Mapping.

This dataset contains the following fields:

  • potential_photovoltaic_electricity_production: The long term average of the daily total of potential photovoltaic electricity production (PVOUT) at the specified location, in kWh/kWp.
