Launch Webinar: IRENA’s SolarCity Simulator – Assessing Rooftop Solar Potential

Jun 21 2021


Population growth leading to an overload on existing infrastructure, place cities increasingly at the forefront of challenges in the quest for a global energy transition.

These challenges call for innovative and collaborative efforts from stakeholders to consciously embrace sustainable energy practices to achieve carbon-neutral goals.

Advances in urban energy planning help relevant authorities to take advantage of technological development that access climate-friendly, affordable and reliable energy supplies through solar photovoltaic (PV) simulation tools.

The SolarCity Simulator, developed by IRENA, is an innovative web-based platform designed to support its member countries to fully explore the opportunities of deploying solar PV systems at the local municipality level.

The tool allows users to test policy instruments, incentive schemes, and system specification that could lead to potential economic savings as well as social-environmental benefits.
