Laboratories & facilities

  1. Comprehensive metrological solar resource data is essential for evaluating the results of ESTI's outdoor exposure testing on PV modules. The ESTI meteo tower measures and records the following parameters:
    Global irradiation on 0, 45, 60 and 90° planes
    Diffuse irradiation 
    Relative humidity
    Wind speed
    Wind direction
    Rain gauge 
    Ambient temperature
    Local Barometric Pressure

  2. The JRC's European Solar Test Installation carries out research on photovoltaic devices, and supports the EU in meeting its targets for renewable energy.
