Solar report - Radiation variability
Analyses of availability and variability of radiation or PV-power for any site in the world. Based on the hourly time series since 1986 the radiation climate of your site is analysed. The interannual, seasonal or daily radiation distribution is summarized in intuitive graphics to support your site selection or system management strategy. Check out our solar report sample for Basel, Switzerland.
Solar history - Raw data
solar history offers raw data as hourly, daily or monthly time series or TMY (Typical Meteorological Year) since 1985 with a spatial resolution of 30 km for the following variables:
- solar radiation
- PV reference yield
- cloud cover
- temperature and dew point temperature
Other variables on demand.
Based on 30 years of hourly radiation data, meteoblue offers various maps with a spatial resolution of 3-25km for any country in the world. Solar maps allow you to compare different sites in your region at first glance.
MOS (Model output statistics) is the technique of post-processing the output from numerical weather forecast models using statistics of local historical or actual weather measurements. The MOS service substantially improves the accuracy of the historical data for temperature, humidity, wind speed and radiation (other variables can be specified on request). With one years of measurements a 30 year tie series in MOS quality can be generated.
To assure the highest quality level of your ordered radiation data we can compare the last years of solar history data with satellite observed radiation data. Then the model data is used to extrapolate quality of satellite data to a 30 years hourly time series with MOS.
Based on time series of different weather models and nearby temperature, precipitation and snow measurements we create a downscaled time series which contains the best meteorological expertise snow estimation for your site. The time series is delivered with a report that summarizes data sources and methods for downscaling the data to your specific site.
