Solar energy

Optimise solar energy with our services.

Make the most out of solar energy with our services.

We can provide:

  • Analysis of global solar irradiation data
  • Research on how solar irradiation can change on a monthly, seasonal and annual basis as a result of climate change
  • Consultation and advice on choosing the right geographical location for solar panels and optimising solar production

We can provide in-depth, regionally focused solar information in the form of a gridded cut-out of your specific area. In addition, we can provide the relevant gridded data sets on solar radiation for your area, should you wish to carry out further investigations.

The map below represents solar radiation across the UK.
