HelioClim-3 Prospection demo

HelioClim-3 Prospection Demo: For long-term evaluation of solar resource on given areas

Limitations of this DEMO web service:
The temporal availability range for the demo tool is from Jan.2004 to Dec.2006 while the subscription will open the full dataset, from Feb.2004 to yesterday.

HelioClim3 Prospection service delivers long-term time series of irradiation anywhere it is needed. Each site can be retrieved up to 5 times to face any situation or change along the time of the project.
About the model (HC3v5), we enhance the native spatial resolution of MSG0° by computing inside a MSG pixel the irradiation variation due to the altitude and to the shadow of the horizon for a specific point. The relief used to compute the shadowing is obtained from the SRTM digital surface model, with a spatial resolution of ~100 meters. Aerosols Optical Depth are also considered.

The service provides global, direct and diffuse solar radiation for GHI, GTI (fixed tilted) and even trackers (1D/2D).

Please contact us at soda@vaisala.com if you need more information or request for a trial of our full service.

Meteorological database

Retrieve HC3 time series together with meteorological data in a single CSV file. Source of the Meteo Data: Merra-2 (NASA) from February 2004 up to approx. a month ago, GFS (NCEP) afterward. Just set to "True" the "Add meteo data" input parameter.
