Solar resource and forecasting at municipality level

An EO4GEO Webinar | November 9th, 2021, 14:00-15:30 CET.


he EO4GEO Partner UPAT in collaboration with the e-shape project, invites you this November 9th, 2021 at 14:00-15:30 CET to a webinar aimed to designate the potential role of solar energy resource and forecasting in solar farms’ efficient planning and operation.

The participants will be able to understand the basics about solar resource and forecasting as well as the benefits of Earth Observation systems to the solar energy sector. State-of-the-art solar energy forecasting tools from European to municipality scale will be presented for selected cases.

The webinar is mainly non-technical and targets planners on regional/city/municipal scale as well professionals with no extensive experience in solar energy.


November 9th, 2021 at 14:00 CET. Duration: 1.5 h.


  • Presentation of the webinar content and the EO4GEO project
  • Bringing together Earth Observation resources in Europe: the e-shape project
  • Energy meteorology: Terms and Definitions
  • Earth Observation systems for Solar Energy
  • Solar energy nowcasting and short-term forecasting
  • Use of satellite data to assess and forecast solar energy potential in cities: from solar cadaster to PV variability at urban scale


  • Andreas Kazantzidis (Laboratory of Atmospheric Physics, University of Patras, Greece)
  • Stelios Kazadzis (Physics – Meteorology Observatory Davos, Word Radiation Center, Switzerland)
  • Philippe Blanc (MINES ParisTech, PSL Research University, France)


The workshop is organised by UPAT in collaboration with the e-shape project.
