Solar Radiation Practical Modeling for Renewable Energy Applications Daryl Ronald Myers National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Arvada, Colorado, USA

“... provides a unique balance of a theoretical treatment and practical application for a broad readership interested in learning and using the latest information on solar radiation modeling. The scope is comprehensive, giving the reader everything from the subject fundamentals to the numerical recipes and technical references for further study. The treatment of uncertainty and the ‘modeler’s toolbox’ formed by the appendices are reason enough to have this book.” —Tom Stoffel, U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory

“… a relevant and well-structured tour through the ever-increasing array of radiometric modeling techniques available to researchers. … an indispensable guide to practitioners and teachers by one of the leading authorities on solar resource modeling.” —Michael Brooks, University of KwaZulu-Natal
