Solar Integration Data and Tools

NREL provides the energy community with solar data and tools to study the operational impacts of solar on the electric power grid.

Solar Power Data for Integration Studies

Modeled solar data for energy professionals—such as transmission planners, utility planners, project developers, and university researchers—who perform solar integration studies and need to estimate power production from hypothetical solar power plants.

Solar Integration National Dataset Toolkit

The next generation of modeled solar data with higher temporal and spatial resolution with public access to reduce the costs and risks of integrating solar power systems into the electric power grid.

Solar Resource Data and Tools

Current and historical solar resource data and tools to support the integration of solar technologies on the grid.
