Quantifying Gains in
Solar Project Value
from Quality Satellite and Ground Data

The U.S. solar industry grew dramatically in 2016, with total new utility and commercial installations reaching nearly 12 GW according to GTM Research. Growth, however, has led to greater competition for projects and lower energy prices. Therefore, project developers are looking for ways to understand and reduce the uncertainty of plant performance inputs to optimize project returns.

This on-demand webinar presents detailed information on how various types of satellite and ground measurements can impact project value during the development stage. Experts from GroundWork Renewables and Clean Power Research describe how quality data collection at a development site can be used to reduce the uncertainty of long-term plant production predictions.

By viewing this webinar, you'll also learn:
  • How production model inputs (irradiance, transposition, inter-annual variability, soiling, etc.) are impacted by underlying measurement uncertainty.
  • How the resulting energy production uncertainty affects project value.
  • How return on investment is calculated with high quality ground and satellite data.
