Solar InCell™ delivers a real-time solar resource evaluation service through a SaaS (Software as a Service) platform, built on a system that uses an IoT (Internet of Things) based solar irradiance measurement device, and satellite data issuing from meteorological satellites.
The observations made by the autonomous weather station are consolidated with the irradiance data computed from the relevant satellite’s image. This permits to overcome the traditional issues of data collection with classical ground sensors, that lead to imperfect or incomplete datasets:
- Sensor failures and measurement drift over time
- “Measurement error” (typically shadowing), caused by the sensor’s environment
