SOLAR RADIATION AND METEOROLOGICAL DATA SERVICES

TO Optimize solar energy production toward a sustainable future

 

SoDa is an access to many solarmeteorologicalaltitudeastronomical, and atmospheric services.

SoDa delivers solar radiation and meteorological data services for solar photovoltaic and thermal site prospection and electricity production monitoring and forecasting.

SoDa also provides spectral radiation services for agriculture and health domains.

Solar radiation data from satellite imagery and pyranometer calibration

HelioClim-3 solar radiation database

  • Direct, diffuse, reflected and global solar radiation

  • Radiation components at normal, tilted and horizontal planes

  • From Feb. 2004 up to tomorrow

  • From 1 min to 1 month

  • From Meteosat-11 satellite images (3 km resolution)

  • Take into account the shadowing effect due to far horizon

  • Web portals and automatic (API) accesses to data
