A new approach for the fast estimation of the solar energy potential in urban environments
TU Delft researchers have developed a new approach for calculating fast and accurate the solar energy potential of surfaces in the urban environment. The new approach can significantly help architects and urban planners to incorporate photovoltaic (solar power) technology in their designs. The findings were presented on Monday 4 February in Nature Energy.

EEMCS launches international PhotoVoltaic Systems Summer School
Following a successful introduction of on campus and online education on solar energy, Delft University of Technology will launch an international Photovoltaic Systems Summer School from 2 to 9 July this year. By organizing the summer school, the university wants to serve participants who plan and desire taking a career step towards practical solar energy engineering and/or who already have a job in the field but wish to gain a deeper knowledge. Therefore, it is intended for PhD candidates, PostDocs, researchers and engineers. The summer school will offer theoretical knowledge and practical training in design, installation, understanding, and monitoring of PV systems.
