Abstract

The last guidelines approved by Italian government to financially support the solar Photovoltaic (PV) Energy production development include specific indications for more advantageously funding installations exploiting roofs/covers surfaces mainly located in urban or industrial areas. Since the 3D heterogeneity, albedo, atmospheric turbidity and casting shadows significantly influence here the local solar irradiance, the implemented methodology allowed us to suitably account for these distributed factors by means active (LIDAR) and passive satellite/airborne remote sensing techniques and advanced GIS modelling tools in order to support more realistic estimates of PV potential at roofs level in urban areas.
