SynaptiQ goes west, integrating accurate satellite irradiation data for the Americas

10-11-2015

In order to leverage the full functionality of the SynaptiQ independent performance analytics for PV plants on the American continents, 3E’s R&D team has integrated the data from the geostationary GOES-EAST and GOES-WEST satellites.

The NOAA CLAVR-x Cloud Processing System is applied in combination with 3E’s proprietary post-processing algorithms to calculate in-plane irradiation for each individual SynaptiQ solar array. The horizontal and in-plane satellite irradiation indicators are available in SynaptiQ on hourly level and updated daily.

This independent in-plane irradiation reference is the perfect indicator to monthly calculate contractual indicators for roof-top projects and to benchmark/ challenge on-site pyranometer data for utility scale projects.

This method will prove to be a significant advantage for the actual American and Canadian SynaptiQ assets, and all future assets in these markets.
