Surface Solar Energy
Project DescriptionSurface Solar Energy (SSE) involves over 100 satellite-derived
meteorology and solar energy parameters, monthly averaged from
10 years of data, data tables for a particular location, color
plots on both global and regional scales, global solar energy
data for 1195 ground sites, and data for the RETScreen?
Renewable Energy Project Analysis Software.
Surface Solar Energy (SSE) contains data sets that involve
resource parameters formulated for assessing and designing
renewable energy systems. The SSE data set is available
free-of-charge over the Internet
(http://eosweb.larc.nasa.gov/sse/). The SSE global data set
makes it possible to quickly evaluate the potential of renewable
energy projects for any region of the world and is considered to
be accurate for preliminary feasibility studies of renewable
