• Solar global horizontal irradiation

    African countries have an evident potential for solar energy. Knowing the amount of solar radiation reaching the earth's surface is of particular interest for photovoltaic installations. It can be represented by the Global Horizontal Irradiation: the total amount of energy received from the Sun by a surface horizontal to the ground during a period of time, expressed in Wh/m2. This map shows the yearly average (2005-2015) global horizontal irradiation (kWh/m2).
