For many projects we've analyzed the incoming solar radiation at ground for concentrating solar systems and for photovoltaic systems. The radiation (direct-normal and global-horizontal) is provided by the satellite-based service SOLEMI. Hourly time series of the radiation back to 1991 and high resolution digital maps (up to 1km²) can be provided. The format of hourly time series is simple ASCII or EXCEL. The format of the digital maps is suitable for GIS (e.g. ArcGis or IDRISI). Cross-checks with actual radiation measurements at the ground can also be provided. Therefore, the knowledge of our colleagues at the Plataforma Solar in Almería, the European testing facility for concentrating solar technologies, assists the analysis.
The geographical focus actually lies in the Mediterranean region and on the Arabian peninsula.
For following companies / institutions amongst others a solar assessment was performed and/or we've consulted their solar activies (alphabetically arranged):
