As part of the “Lernnetz Bauphysik” (Building Physics Learning Network), an independent online tool for urban-based solar potential analyses has been specially developed for use in education and training. Based on a simplified 3D model created in the integrated Project Editor, EnOB Solar Potential Analysis enables the simulation of solar irradiation totals in freely defined time periods together with shading effects and solar hours, in each case on the district scale. This tool is available free of charge and can be obtained by the link: https://projektinfos.energiewendebauen.de/en/project/werkzeug-fuer-die-staedtebauliche-solarpotenzialanalyse/

Document Number: Task 51/Report D1 Part 1

This report focuses on education in order to strengthen the knowledge and competence of relevant stakeholders in solar energy in urban planning. The core of this study is to create substantial links between research and education as well as between research and practice. Knowledge gaps in current education were investigated, reasons for these gaps were identified and solutions and strategies are proposed to overcome these shortcomings.
