Solar resource mapping in Malawi: annual solar resource report
This report is prepared within Phase 2 of the project Renewable Energy Resource Mapping for the Republic of Malawi. This project focuses on solar resource mapping and measurement services as part of a technical assistance in the renewable energy development implemented by the World Bank in Malawi. It is being undertaken in close coordination with the Ministry of Natural Resources, Energy and Mining (MoNREM) of Malawi, the World Bank’s primary country counterpart for this project, and Malawi Meteorological Services (MMS). This project is funded by the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP), administered by the World Bank and supported by bilateral donors. This report summarizes results of first 12 months of the measuring campaign at three solar meteorological stations installed in Malawi, as part of the World Bank’s ESMAP mission in Malawi. The report describes delivery of site-specific data, site adaptation of solar model, data uncertainty and statistical summary.
