(sometimes from south) Zenith angle of the sun: Defined as the angle measured from vertical downward. Solar Constant Source of Solar Energy  Amount of incoming solar radiation per unit area incident on a plane perpendicular to the rays.  At a distance of one 1AU from the sun (roughly the mean distance from the Sun to the Earth).  Includes a range of wavelength (not just the visible light). Solar Constant Entry point into atmosphere 2 Intensity 1350W/mSolar Radiation Spectrum Source of Solar Energy Solar Radiation Budget (to Earth) Source of Solar Energy Factors affect the Solar intensity Source of Solar Energy  Latitude  Altitude  Atmospheric transparency  Solar zenith angle Applications of Solar Energy  Reserves of energy on Earth  Solar energy distribution  Advantages of using solar energy  Types of applications Reserves of Energy on Earth Applications of Solar Energy Remaining Available Period Reserves (year) Coal 660.8 Gton 43 Oil 152 Gton 210 3 Gas 160755 Gm 67 Uranium 1.57 Mton 42 Solar Energy Distribution Applications of Solar Energy Annual global mean downward solar radiation distribution at the surface Advantages of using Solar Energy Application of Solar Energy  No pollution  Inexhaustible  Contribution to energy supply and CO reduction 2  The annual collector yield of the world was 109,713 GWh (394,968 TJ). This corresponds to an oil equivalent of 12.4 million tons and an annual avoidance of 39.4 million tons of CO . 2  The annual collector yield of Taiwan was 918 GWh (3306 TJ). This corresponds to an oil equivalent of 101,780 tons and an annual avoidance of 322,393 tons of CO . 2 Weiss, Werner, I. Bergmann, and G. Faninger.
