The DLR archive contains the SOLEMI (Solar Energy Mining) database of measurements made by the METEOSAT satellites over Europe, Africa and Asia over the past 20 years. These are used to deduce long-term time series of the solar irradiance at potential locations for power stations. In this way, energy meteorology combines regular meteorology with different fields of engineering sciences, information technology and economics.
