I want to study the effect of cool roof (high reflective) surfaces on electricity generation by solar panels. Is it possible to model this using EnergyPlus? Does EnergyPlus considers reflections from roof that could possibly increase solar radiations received by PV, and thereby generating more power? I'm open to any other ideas in case any.
