Recent Century Climate Change's Impact on East Asia Renewable Energy Resources
MetadataShow full item record
This research aims to identify the climate change and air pollution emissions impact on renewable energy resources, specifically for solar energy availability. We analyzed meteorological reanalysis data of solar radiation over the last 30-50 years, on the areas that are directly impacted by Eastern Asian Summer Monsoon (EASM) such as southeastern China, and other parts of China and countries in East Asia. We identify changes in solar energy availability, which includes lower solar radiation arriving at the surface that will likely produce less solar energy. This research also compiles the locations of current and planned solar energy programs and focuses analysis on the area with those programs. In the end, this research will discuss what anthropogenic influences of both climate and pollution mean for solar energy in China.
