On-Demand Webinar
Assigning Uncertainty to a Solar Resource Assessment with Less than a Year of Ground Data 

Originally Recorded: July 20th, 2016

SPEAKERS: James Alfi, Manager Solar Engineering, EDF Renewable Energy and Skip Dise, Product Manager, Clean Power Research 

This webinar, first presented at this year's 43rd IEEE Photovoltic Specialists Conference, dives into the second factor defining bankable data, "Are the Uncertainty Rates Known and Acceptable?"

Join James Alfi, Manager, Solar Engineering at EDF Renewable Energy andSkip Dise, Product Manager at Clean Power Research for a discussion on the limitations of traditional statistical methods, along with alternative approaches to calculate a more representative, holistic uncertainty value for a long-term dataset resulting from satellite to ground correction. This will be followed with an interactive Q&A session.  Listen below for a short preview of what will be covered:
