Turning the solar energy received by a surface into electricity is a major challenge for cities looking for a quick and efficient transition to sustainable energy systems.From a complete 3D digital model including terrain, vegetation, buildings any other potentially "masking" elements, RhinoSolar™ allows to evaluate the solar potiential of your infrastructures.
RhinoSolar™ calculates the solar potential and the sunshine duration of all surfaces by taking into account the complete 3D digital model to which they belong.By taking into terrain, vegetation, buildings and all other potentially masking elements, RhinoSolar™ is an unprecedented solution for exploiting a territory's 3D digital model.
RhinoSolar™ computes very precisely, taking in account the 3D visibility complex, the 3 components of the solar irradiance :
The global solar irradiance (power in W.m-2) is the sum of these 3 components. Based on this "clear-sky" solar energy, RhinoSolar™ can also manage the impact of cloud cover to determine sunshine.
URBAN HEAT ISLAND (UHI)An Urban Heat Island (UHI) is an urban area that is significantly warner than its surrounding rural areas due to human activities.Compute the sunshine duration is the key point of UHI analysis. Using RhinoSolar™ you'll be able to :
RhinoSolar™ produces usable numerical results in Excel or SQLite, as well as textured 3D models from totally customizable gradients: let your creativity expose the solar potential of your data!
RhinoSolar provides multiple ways of presenting your results:
In order to work properly, your copy of RhinoSolar for Rhino requires Rhino 5.
