[ QGIS ] – Solar Energy – Introduction to SEBE with UMEP

“Lindberg et al.’s (2015) solar radiation model SEBE (Solar Energy on Building Envelopes) allows estimates of solar irradiance on ground surfaces, building roofs and walls”.

“SEBE is incorporated in UMEP (Urban Multi-scale Environmental Predictor), a plugin for QGIS. As SEBE was initially developed to estimate solar energy potential on building roofs, the Digital Surface Models (DSMs) used need to include roof structures, such as tilted roofs, chimneys etc. Methods to produce accurate ground and building DSMs for SEBE include the use of LiDAR technology and 3D roof structure objects in vector format”.
