Snowdrift at the solar park of Isfjord Radio, RiS ID 12308

Tildelt: kr 77 999

The adaptation of renewable energy in the Arctic requires knowledge of the Arctic climate's influence on energy installations such as solar panels. Therefore, snowdrift is investigated at the recently installed solar photovoltaic array at Isfjord Radio. For this, observations from a weather station directly at the site are needed. This weather station will be installed and maintained during fieldwork in the spring of 2024. The analysis of the data includes the characterisation of the local windfield and the weather conditions favourable for snowdrift, the effect on the PV production as well as the interpretation of the results in the context of the Arctic wind climate.
