ABSTRACT
The paper presents sunshine duration and solar radiation intensity in Krakow regarding their potential for helioenergetics. The data used come from the research station of the Department of Climatology, Institute of Geography and Spatial Management, Jagiellonian University, Krakow. Due to astronomic and climatic conditions, Krakow is characterised by the daily and annual variability of solar radiation intensity and large share of the diffuse radiation. The solar conditions in Krakow allow the use of solar energy by using solar collectors absorbing the direct and diffuse radiation. Further research along with the introduction of the government program to encourage the use of solar energy is needed.
