Hybrid (Wind-Solar) Map Portal

The wind-solar Hybrid portal gives an updated overview of the hybrid suitability of various regions of India based on numerical model data set.

The information provided here are expected to serve as the basis for preliminary site assessment during the prospecting phase of wind-solar hybrid project developments in the country. Further, the information will be useful for all stakeholders of the sector including the policy makers, private players, government agencies in their efforts towards achieving the country’s RE goals.

The basic functions of the portal are briefed below for the easy access;

  • Select the required location either by;
    • Double clicking on the map directly or
    • Entering the Latitude & Longitude of the location and clicking the submit button.
  • Once you enter the point / click the required location, the following information will appear will appear on the left side of the dashboard;
    • Latitude of the nearest grid point
    • Longitude of the nearest grid point
    • Wind speed (m/s)
    • Wind CUF (%)
    • Global Horizontal Irradiance – GHI (kWh/Sq.m/Yr)
    • Solar CUF (%) and
    • Effective CUF (%) Hybrid chart
  • The background layer icon enables you to view the map on varying backgrounds namely Open Street, Dark view, Newspaper, Normal and Terrain view.
  • The second background layer icon enables you to view the various map namely Wind CUF (%), Solar CUF (%) and Hybrid Suitability (%) separately.
