GeoModel Solar, a Slovakia-based developer and operator of solar databases and online systems, has launched SolarGIS pvSpot, a new performance assessment tool for photovoltaic power plants.
According to the company, pvSpot can be used to detect underperformance of any photovoltaic power plant in Europe and South Africa. It is based on the latest advancements in satellite-based solar modeling and electricity simulation.
‘Because pvSpot uses high-resolution validated satellite data and proven algorithms, independence and quality of performance assessment is guaranteed,’ says Marcel Suri, managing director of GeoModel Solar. ‘While pvSpot can be used as a complementary tool for well-monitored utility scale PV projects, it is practically the only reliable solution for medium-size and small PV installations.’
