Laboratory Facilities

The research programme has state-of-the-art laboratory facilities in Aalborg and Esbjerg:

ACCESS to Weather data MEASUREMENTS for AAU staff and students

5-minute average in-plane solar irradiance, wind speed, ambient and solar module temperature is available (only from AAU network) through a Matlab GUI programme. The logging has started in June 2011 and is continuously running.

In order to access the data, please see the instructions on the bottom of the the page here.
