We regularly hear in the news that temperatures are rising, that atmospheric content of aerosols should increase, and that we should also probably face an increase of soiling of solar installations.
In the meantime and in agreement with this questions, SoDa received several requests from Users who would need to know how an estimation of the solar potential and the yield assessed at day D is still relevant during the lifetime of the solar projects, and also further in the future.
In the purpose to address these issues, Transvalor, thanks to its collaboration with MINES ParisTech, invested time, energy and money to participate to the ECEM-athon, an intensive week of work (6-10 Nov. 2017) to investigate how SoDa could benefit from the diverse outcomes of the ECEM project. ECEM stands for European Climatic Energy Mixes.The main purpose of ECEM is to enable the energy industry and policy makers to assess how well energy supply will meet demand in Europe over different time horizons, focusing on the role climate has on energy supply and demand. They develop a particularly efficient tool entitled the ECEM Demonstrator to explore different scenarios and models.
