Products for Solar Energy - Site Search

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
  • sunshine 
  • cloud cover 
  • temperature and dew point temperature 

Other variables on demand.       

Solar maps

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.

Special services 

Satellite comparison

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.

Snow analyses

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. 


The solar history information can be transmitted through the following methods: 


The meteoblue solar history services can be delivered in the following format: 

  • png (solar maps
  • pdf (solar reports, special services)
  • csv (raw data)
  • json (raw data)


Weather archive diagrams are free of charge for the previous year and can be found on the meteoblue website. To get access to all years you need a point+ subscription.
