3D Solar Analytics Enables Instant Solar Evaluation for your PV Installation Project

3D Solar Analytics Enables Instant Solar Evaluation for your PV Installation Project

In the first blog post of this series we looked at the need for innovation in solar planning software. Now, continuing on the topic of solar energy and solar potential analysis, let’s explore what makes a solar tool great for everyone. Can precise solar power simulation actually be easy to use, accurate and run on any device, all at the same time, in a 3D app?

The Importance of Visualizing Solar Potential

Seeing is believing – that is why visualization is the first pillar of Shadowmap. Seeing the real world represented as an accurate digital twin helps to navigate complex planning processes that in reality are always three-dimensional. Even small obstacles can have a great impact on actual irradiance and yield. No matter if you are looking at real estate, architectural projects or solar energy – more accuracy is preferable.

In combination with this first pillar of visualization, and the second pillar of customizing the 3D environment – 3D Solar Analytics finally adds the third building block to create a groundbreaking planning tool for solar pv installation, real estate, urban planning and many more use cases.

Instant solar evaluation in 3D is now reality.

Shadowmap is here to help shape an energy-efficient future for everyone. Reconnecting humanity with our eternal energy source (the Sun 😉).

We want to offer more than just solar metrics on a flat map (too abstract for most people). Not to mention visualizations that only look nice but don’t represent a factual state. We want to be your quick solution for actually estimating the feasibility and yield of your solar panels. Our solar analytics solution combines the best of both worlds. It helps you reach the optimal performance for your solar project, both commercially or for your home.

Analytics will first be available in Shadowmap Studio – your all-in-one suite to plan sunlight and shadow for your custom 3D buildings and environments. Share and embed easily for all stakeholders to see.

How 3D Solar Analytics answers your solar questions, in an instant

Let’s dive deeper and look at the features of 3D Solar Analytics as part of Shadowmap Studio:

  • Instant, near real-time calculation of solar potential based on a precise solar radiation model and digital twin

  • Custom 3D models and custom shapes drawn in-app are also instantly recognized and analyzed for solar metrics

  • Intuitive and easy to use UI – both mobile and in browser

  • Easy Integration into your workflow, website or app – from the first evaluation to presenting solar pv projects, either directly to customers and stakeholders – online or in person

  • More solar features and metrics will be added to Shadowmap to enable in-depth analytics soon.

Solar Analytics will be released as part of Shadowmap Studio end of April 2024
