GEOSUN Project

GEOSUN is a regional cooperation scientific and technological project  between South Africa and Reunion Island, at the initiative of LE2P, Le Port and Durban.

 

Based on the experience of the RCI_GS (Intelligent Sensor Network for a better understanding of the Solar Field) project initiated in 2011, LE2P has established partnerships with research teams from neighbouring countries to start a ground-based solar mapping network in the Western Indian Ocean.

 

On the initiative of two twin cities (namely the Port City in Reunion Island and Durban in South Africa) wishing to expand their exchange actions, LE2P has approached the University of KwaZulu Natal (UKZN) whose solar radiation study is also one of the research subjects.

 

The two teams, by pooling their know-how, decided to launch a network of sensors in the KwaZulu Natal.
