    Lecturer from German Aerospace Center (DLR) - Institute of Networked Energy Systems - Department Energy Analysis - Team Energy Meteorology: The lecture addresses applications of solar energy meteorology. As a basis, most important physical laws for solar energy meteorology as well as models for solar resource assessment and forecasting are introduced. A special emphasis will be on evaluation concepts and applications. • requirements for solar resource data from different applications • models and measurement devices for solar resource assessment and forecasting • benefits and drawbacks of different models • methods to assess the quality of solar resource data The lectures are combined with practical excercises in data handling, analysis and quality control of meteorological and solar radiation data. The exercises are based on Python programming language. Therefore basic skills of the programming language are required. The course examination is done in project work and a short presentation of results in the last lecture of the course. The project work is strongly linked to daily applications in solar energy meteorology and based on research data from DLR institute.

    Lecturer from Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE) The lecture addresses applications of solar energy meteorology. As a basis, most important physical laws for solar energy meteorology as well as models for solar resource assessment and forecasting are introduced. A special emphasis will be on evaluation concepts and applications. The students will learn about: • requirements for solar resource data from different applications • models and measurement devices for solar resource assessment and forecasting • benefits and drawbacks of different models • methods to assess the quality of solar resource data The lectures are combined with short exercises. In the last - seminar type - part of the course the students are asked to get a better understanding of lessons learnt by studying and presenting publications related to solar energy meteorology.
