With the cost of materials normalizing and conversion efficiency improving steadily, the long-time barriers to broad implementation of solar power are dissolving. However, the issues of intermittency and reliability have come to the forefront of public discourse on solar energy. Increasing scrutiny from solar project developers and their financers on the accuracy of long term resource projections, and grid operators' concerns about variable short-term power generation, have ensured that the field of solar forecasting and resource assessment has become pivotally important. To date, there has been no comprehensive single text covering this topic, which leaves a lamentable gap in the literature core to this important field. This authoritative work on the topic, incorporating contributions from an internationally recognized group of top authors from both industry and academia, is focused on providing information from underlying scientific fundamentals to practical applications, and emphasizing the latest technological developments driving this discipline forward. The only reference dedicated to forecasting and assessing solar resources enables a complete understanding of the state of the art from the world's most renowned experts.Demonstrates how to derive reliable data on solar resource availability and variability at specific locations to support accurate prediction of solar plant performance and attendant financial analysis.Provides cutting-edge information on recent advances in solar forecasting through monitoring, satellite and ground remote sensing, and numerical weather prediction.
