Abstract

The first aim of our research is to calculate the solar irradiance on roofs assuming clear sky and real (climatologically typical) conditions, respectively, and compare them in a densely built inner city study area in Szeged (Hungary). The second aim is to analyse the shading effect of the tree-crowns on the possible solar energy gain of building roofs. The calculation of the climatologically potential solar energy gain based on an empirical atmospheric transmittance (calculated from the measured global radiation values). The results show that in the case of clear sky condition the urban vegetation (tree-crowns) causes significant potential solar energy loss on the roofs, but in the real situations this effect is less significant. These obtained results clearly illustrate how useful tool could be the presented calculation method at the economical and technical planning stage of the installation of solar systems on roofs.
