Portugal: 28% of Lisbon Buildings with Perfect Solar Thermal Energy Conditions

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on October 29, 2012

Thanks to a new online tool, Lisbon’s inhabitants are now able to determine the solar potential of their buildings’ rooftops. Lisbon’s so-called “Solar Potential Map” (Carta do Potencial Solar do Concelho de Lisboa) has been launched recently by the municipality’s energy agency, Lisboa E-Nova. The tool, which is free of charge, uses Google Maps to identify areas in which solar thermal systems can be installed. The calculation factors in the orientation and angle of the roof, shading, as well as other obstacles. All in all, 28% of Lisbon’s rooftops show an optimal orientation for the use of solar thermal energy.
