Training on Solar Radiation Measurement On Arica-Parinacota (Chile)

Detailed description of the project

Definition and installation of a network of ground-based meteorological stations in the region of Arica-Parinacota (XV Region of Chile) to get bankable solar radiation data to be used to develop CSP and PV projects in the area. This ground data is complemented with satellite analysis to solar radiation map definition.

Services provided by the legal entity of the project

  • Definition of ground base meteorological stations and filtering and evaluation of direct and global radiation data to satellite map retrofitting and definition
  • Definition, acquisition and transport to the North of Chile of the different ground stations to be used on field
  • Continuous analysis of meteo data to guarantee its quality (using specific filtering software)
  • Generation of periodic reports
  • Periodic presentation of results to the local authorities and clients
