The SoDa Service is a broker to a list of services and webservices, i.e. it offers a one-stop access to a large set of information relating to solar radiation and its use.
The SoDa Service builds links to other resources that are located in various countries.
To answer a request, the SoDa Service invokes several resources to elaborate the appropriate answer and ensures the flow and exchange of information between the services and itself, as well as with the customer.
SoDa is implemented in 2003 by Mines ParisTech and managed since 2013 by the research center O.I.E. of Mines ParisTech (Center Observation, Impact, Energy) which put every effort on the assessment and analysis of spatial and temporal aspects of renewable energies resources and the environmental impacts of energy systems.
The research center O.I.E. is a common laboratory (or structure) of MINES ParisTech and ARMINES. ARMINES, a structure created in 1967, is based on the concept of research-orientated towards the industry. With more than 600 employees at ARMINES (teaching scientists, research engineers, doctoral candidates, postgraduates, technicians, administrative personnel), they support research together with their colleagues from the schools in joint research centres from ARMINES/ Schools.
Since Apr. 2009, TRANSVALOR S.A., a French SME founded in 1984, is in charge of the commercialization and exploitation of SoDa, and participates to innovative research projects.
