Solar resource mapping in Pakistan : site evaluation report - Nok Kundi, Pakistan meteorological department (English)

A team of the solar vendor consortium for the ESMAP Pakistan Solar Resource Mapping Project visited the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) office in Nok Kundi on August 31, 2014. The goal was to evaluate if the location is suitable for the installation of a solar ground measurement station in the framework of the project. Four different sites have been examined on the campus, three on the roof of office buildings on the PMD location and one on the ground at the meteorological measurement station of PMD. Site 2, the ground site at the meteorological station, is recommended for the installation of a Tier2 meteorological station (CSP Services MDI automatic weather station).
