This workshop will work through a description and demonstration of all solar modeling data and tools available from the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). The topics will include: The National Solar Radiation Database (NSRDB) – updates and ways to access this sub-hourly gridded resource data; PVWatts – recent updates to include the NSRDB – opening up much of North and South America for analysis; System Advisor Model (SAM) – SAM is now open source, includes PV + batteries, bifacial panels, and much more; REOpt Lite – an online tool for quick PV and battery sizing for commercial buildings; PV Component LCOE Calculator – Allows for module costing based on components; A detailed demonstration of the SAM model for modeling a PV system with a battery and some of the questions that can be answered; A quick overview of what is planned for the next three year cycle of research.
