First-of-its-kind tool to assess potential of rooftop solar in Bengaluru

Center for Study of Science, Technology and Policy (CSTEP), a non-profit think tank, is building a tool that can help identify most suitable rooftops to install solar rooftop photovoltaic (RTPV) plants in Bengaluru.

CSTEP will help Bengaluru Electricity Supply Company (BESCOM) as a technology partner by using the aerial Light Detection & Ranging (LiDAR) technology to develop high-resolution three-dimensional maps of the city.

“This first-of-its-kind tool can accurately assess the potential of rooftop solar in Bengaluru and the associated business case for all consumer categories,” CSTEP said.

BESCOM aims to achieve a target of one gigawatt of solar RTPV capacity by 2021-22. Read More
