For continuous promotion of the solar PV system in buildings, it is crucial to analyze the rooftop solar PV potential. However, the rooftop solar PV potential in urban areas highly varies depending on the available rooftop area due to the building shadow. In order to estimate the available rooftop area accurately by considering the building shadow, this study proposed an estimation method of the available rooftop area for installing the rooftop solar PV system by analyzing the building shadow using Hillshade Analysis. A case study of Gangnam district in Seoul, South Korea was shown by applying the proposed estimation method.
