Products for Solar Energy - System Design

Images - Monthly yield calculator

The solar monthly yield calculator tool allows to quickly check the expected electricity generation and their seasonal behavior of different PV system layouts for any location in the world.

Solar report - PV system layout comparison

Seasonal production profiles help to optimise your system layout.

  • Monthly reference yield for 20 different inclinations & orientation
  • Optimise your yield on your consumption

Solar report - PV yield 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 summarised in intuitive graphics to support your site selection or system management strategy.
