Total and Google Cloud have joined to develop an innovative tool, Solar Mapper, which aims to accelerate the deployment of solar panels for individuals (B2C) by providing an accurate and rapid estimate of the solar energy potential of their homes.
Solar Mapper uses brand-new artificial intelligence algorithms that provide better results than current tools.
In the case of France, Solar Mapper provides more than 90% geographical coverage, allowing many more people to assess the solar potential of their homes, with greater accuracy than before.
” Solar Mapper will enable Total to faster deploy solar panels on the houses’ roofs, in order to provide its customers with more affordable and more accessible solar energy. By combining Total’s expertise in solar energy with Google Cloud’s expertise in artificial intelligence and databases, we were able to develop an attractive and innovative offer together in just six months.”Marie-Noëlle Séméria, Total’s chief technology officer.
In addition, Total plans to develop a B2B application of Solar Mapper, dedicated to industrial and commercial buildings and installations.
Solar Mapper is contributing to the group’s ambition to become a world leader in the production of renewable energies, toward getting to net-zero emissions by 2050 together with society.
