Solar Sector

Solar developments exist in many forms including large-scale solar parks, small-scale rooftop panels, floating solar plants, agrophotovoltaics, arrays that track the sun and more. A common requirement is for developers to ensure that such developments will not cause unacceptable impacts associated with reflected sunlight by the panels. These effects are often referred to as ‘glint’ and ‘glare’. Solar developments of any scale or type can technically produce glint and glare effects.

Glint and glare concerns most often relate to impacts on pilots, road users, train drivers and surrounding residential properties. Other receptor types can also require assessment. In some cases, there are established industry guidelines for acceptable levels of glare. In others, a more pragmatic approach is required to demonstrate that the issues have been adequately managed. Pager Power has a bespoke model for predicting the times and dates throughout the year that glare effects are possible, along with a published methodology for contextualising effects.

    LATEST TWEETS

    This month in our Back to Basics series, we uncover the ways in which energy generated by wind and solar farms can be stored and how this technology will shape the future of our energy systems. Learn more: https://www.pagerpower.com/news/back-to-basics-part-4-energy-storage/
    #energystorage

    We examine the possibility of harnessing the massive energy output from stars rather than capturing a fraction of the sunlight that reaches Earth. Learn more: https://www.pagerpower.com/news/cosmic-megastructures-dyson-sphere-and-future-of-solar-energy/
    #solarenergy

    We review a study examining methods to reduce the impact of airfield solar on aircraft and facilitate more renewable energy generation. Learn more: https://www.pagerpower.com/news/balancing-solar-energy-generation-pilot-safety-at-airports/
