Which roofs are suitable for photovoltaic installations? How much electricity could such facility produce? What is the ideal investment amount? How to optimize roof-top use?
Berlin Solar Atlas
The Berlin Solar Atlas shows the solar potential of each building in the city in clear, sharp images in both 2D and 3D. Property owners and investors can use the Atlas to determine whether a building's roof is suitable for a solar installation and whether the investment will pay off. The Atlas provides key information at a glance on such matters as the potential power output, reductions in CO2 emissions, and investment costs.
A calculator within the Solar Atlas enables you to individually calculate your costs and turnover. You will receive an initial assessment by inserting factors such the module area, module costs, terms of duration, interest and payment rates. You can access the solar calculator from the data sheet, which you will find on the “tooltip” for the selected building.
The Berlin Solar Atlas is easily accessed from your browser. Click onto a selected building and receive information about the solar suitability for that particular building in 2D and 3D.
The information provided is meant to serve exclusively as an initial analysis for solar energy potential. It is not intended to replace the review and evaluation by an expert, which remains a necessary pre-requisite for installing or using a solar energy system. No guarantee of suitability for solar installations is provided. Such a guarantee would require an inspection and assessment of the individual case.
