Solar Radiation Resource Assessment in India

To achieve the large solar capacity additions detailed in the JNNSM targets required an enlargement of the monitoring network and a focus on high potential sites for solar applications. There are 45 IMD stations that undertake regular measurements of some kind or other, but many of these stations are to be found either in metropolitan cities or at airports, etc. The Government of India decided to expand the monitoring network by setting up an additional 51 Solar Radiation Resource Assessment (SRRA) stations in order to produce the best quality radiation data, these new stations were situated in high potential areas throughout the country and are stateof- art to produce the best quality data.
