ATA Renewables Methodology for Estimating Albedo Over a Typical Meteorological Year (TMY) From Short-Term On-Site Measurement Campaigns

ATA Renewables has developed a methodology to calculate the monthly albedo TMY of any site by extrapolating the values obtained from a Short-Term on-site albedo measurement campaign.

To validate the accuracy of this methodology, extrapolated values were compared with those observed during a 1-year on-site measurement campaign carried out in Seville, Spain. The methodology is designed to retain this level of accuracy regardless of when on-site measurements are carried out.
