We are constantly working to improve Solargis. Below are details of recent updates to Solargis model and services.
You can vote for features and submit new feature requests via our public product roadmap.
New features and improvements:
Solargis TMY data is constructed using multi-year time series (TS) by selecting the most representative months which are finally concatenated into one artificial and representative single year.
We introduced a new methodology for generation of different probability scenarios for TMY PXX (P99, P95, P90, P80, P75, P25, P20, P10, P5, P1) into the data delivery process.
The new methodology is based on increasing the number of months used to generate the TMY from TS. For example: if we have 27 years at the input, we create 729 synthesized candidates. This allows increasing the data points of constructing TMY in a simpler way but also increases the accuracy.
We extended the nowcast availability provided in Solargis. The nowcasting is accessible in the timeframe of up to 6 hours ahead thanks to the Solargis Cloud Motion Vector (CMV) model.
We have extended the nowcast in MSG/MFG PRIME (Europe and Africa) region to Azores, Egypt and Zambia.
Solargis' metadata was updated in all CSV file header of products. The updates include information on whether horizon shading is applied for GHI, DNI, DIF and GTI data, e.g. #GHI - Global horizontal irradiation [Wh/m2], no data value -9, with terrain shading.
