LiDAR Tech For Identifying Rooftops To Install Solar Plants

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.

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

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.

The research organisation said that the tool would be launched in 2019 and will be made freely accessible by all BESCOM consumers to help them make investment decisions.
