Abstract

Continued growth of distributed solar energy capacity in urban environments is expected to create intersectional, spatial challenges for electricity grid stakeholders. This paper assesses how spatial decision-support systems produce reliable data that can facilitate planning between multiple stakeholder groups. A review of SDSS tools that already exist demonstrates weaknesses in functional capacity, spatial capabilities and/or transparency. We propose a workflow that models a suitable solar SDSS and demonstrate its application with a case study.
