Meteorological information is essential for the layout, the operation, and the assessment of solar plants and their components. The department Qualification at the Institute for Solar Research determines the meteorological parameters which are relevant for solar power plants and analyzes their effect on the performance of this technology.
For the development of solar plant projects accurate information about the solar resources of a site is required. Therefore, our scientists develop standards and guidelines for the evaluation of solar resources to improve the meteorological data base for project developments.
The parameters we measure are:
Our services are split into three specialized areas:
