Christian A. Gueymard

Solar resource expert

Chris holds a BSc in Electro-Mechanical Engineering from ESTP Engineering College of Paris, France, an MSc in Applied Ecology from Université de Montpellier, France, an MSc in Environmental Engineering from Federal Polytechnic College of Lausanne, Switzerland, and a PhD in solar energy from the University of Montreal, Canada.

He has accumulated more than 45 years of experience in solar resource assessment, solar radiation modeling, radiometry, albedometry, atmospheric sciences, and various solar energy applications.

He has founded Solar Consulting Services after years of experience as a Research Scientist at the Florida Solar Energy Center and a close collaborator of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).

He is internationally recognized as a leading expert in many aspects of solar radiation measurement and modeling. In particular, he is known for his development of the SMARTS radiation model, which is widely used in various solar applications, most notoriously as the foundation of prominent ASTM and IEC spectral irradiance standards.

He has participated in various IEA Tasks over the years, and is now actively engaged in the current IEA PVPS Task 16 on “Solar resource for high penetration and large-scale applications.”

He has published a large number of scientific publications, including book chapters, and has been a long-time Associate Editor for the Solar Energy scientific journal.
