The high accuracy simulation output from the SunCloudConfluence atmospheric simulation technology is based on the technology’s ability to resolve clouds and the strong effect of the cloud processes on the amount of solar radiation reaching the surface. SunCloudConfluence offers retrospective simulations (for past years) for the purposes of site selection and project design and real-time forecasts for solar farm operations and long-range planning.
solar radiation (total, direct, diffuse) for past 1-30+ years
satellite data & short period measurements – cloud details are missing
we enable cloud processes with our atmospheric models; competitors have tough time simulating clouds
real time solar radiation & clouds from1-hr to 9+ months
make use of past measurements & statistics for these forecasts
we let the atmosphere evolve & shape solar radiation unlike other approaches
