A crystal ball for solar power


About the research

Solar panels are very interesting to invest in, but which technology should you choose? How many panels should you install? And what is the return on investment? Gofran Chowdhury (Imec - KU Leuven - Energyville) is developing a "crystal ball" that will tell you, based on the weather conditions of the place where you live, wich technology to invest in and what configuration will give you the maximal output.

We live at a time when the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon. The idea that technology has been Genesis of the environmental problems, but also an essential part of the solution inspired Gofran Chodwhury to pursue a career in Renewable Energy. His PhD focuses on the energy performance of design, and weather-specific solar power plants. Such tools will empower you to decide on optimal solar technology to be part of the solution too.
