NREL's Solar Radiation Research Laboratory Offers a Mesa-Top Home for Global Measurement Accuracy

The need for good data is foremost. A swing of just a half percentage point in the actual output of solar energy plants-compared to projected outputs-would represent about $165 million annually.

Extreme Winter Weather Hurts 2015 European Solar Performance

Conducting thorough weather analysis is essential for understanding in the short-term whether a project is performing as it should be, based on the available resource.

How Virtual Irradiance Tops Relative Performance Analysis

We think the satellite-image based Virtual Irradiance approach is a scalable and reliable solution to the problem of understanding solar PV performance.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
