Miguel is interested in everything that relates to solar photovoltaics including

  • solar energy potential assessment, in particular in the urban environment
  • measurement of solar radiation and solar radiation models, in the present and future climates
  • solar energy in present and future energy systems
  • solar energy forecasting, for improved energy system management
  • photovoltaics technology
  • solar energy for remote electrification
