The main objective behind the establishment of the enerMENA network of meteorological stations (enerMENA Meteo-Network) is to supply reliable meteorological data of the MENA region especially those of the Direct Normal Irradiance (DNI) that are necessary for the implementation of CSP technologies.

Technical data of the enerMENA Meteo Network
The enerMENA stations provide measurement data of:
• Direct normal solar irradiance (DNI), uncertainty between 1 and 2%• Diffuse horizontal solar irradiance (DHI),• Global horizontal (GHI) solar irradiance. • Ambient temperature, • Relative humidity, • Barometric pressure,• Wind speed and wind direction.
The enerMENA meteorological stations are equipped with a Kipp & Zonen CHP1 first class pyrheliometer and ventilated CMP21 secondary standard pyranometers mounted on a Solys 2 sun tracker with a sun sensor.
