Project description: Many photovoltaic (PV) systems are applied on buildings connected to local electricity networks. An important issue, especially for larger PV systems, is where the systems should be located and connected for maximum system and resource efficiency. In this project, solar deployment plans that identify the most favorable conditions for new systems based on a variety of parameters will be developed to aid spatial planners on municipal and regional level. The project is performed in collaboration with industrial and municipal partners within the research project “Solar Utilization Plans for System and Resource Effective Deployment of Photovoltaic Systems”, funded by the Swedish Energy Agency.

Work duties: Develop a methodology for generation of solar cadastres for roof and ground based PV systems based on high-resolution terrain models derived from LiDAR data. Develop solar deployment plans at municipal level by combining solar cadastres with geospatial data for the built environment such as grid infrastructure, land use, and protected areas due to cultural heritage. Apply the methods in case studies for a Swedish municipality. Departmental duties, usually teaching, will at most cover 20%.

Salary: According to local agreement for PhD students and teaching assistants.
Starting date: 01-03-2019 or by agreement.
Type of position: Full time position, temporary position four years.
