The "fuel" of a solar project is the most critical factor driving its commercial success or failure.
Solar Resource Assessment
Where is irradiance strongest? What are the specific conditions at your site? How much year-to-year power variability is expected and what are my exceedance values? Without addressing these questions, it is impossible to assess a project's feasibility or manage your exposure to risk. Vaisala's assessment services and bankable solar time series provide accurate and reliable answers these questions at any location worldwide.
Solar Energy Forecasting
With more solar energy coming onto the grid every day, how can you successfully integrate and take advantage of this intermittent resource? Vaisala's solar forecasts offers a competitive edge in effectively managing risk at your project or across your energy portfolio.
Vaisala has just made it much easier for you to access high-quality global solar data for resource assessment.
The Solar Time Series Tools provides access to five global datasets, updated monthly, for one low annual price. Use our online Solar Time Series Tools to quickly visualize and order time series.
- Minimize development risk / Rapidly compare weather resource data from multiple high-quality datasets to hedge against later resource answer changes by understanding the spread of answers up front.
- Improve energy estimates / Reducing the cost of solar resource data allows better-quality energy estimates to be prepared earlier in the development process.
- Access data when you need it / Moving at the speed of solar development long-term time series and TMY data are delivered to you in less than 24 hours so you can meet your tight deadlines.
