Weather and climate analysis

With access to global meteorological and climate data, satellite-based observations and in-house numerical weather modelling capability, we can provide tailored weather data and technical support in areas such as solar and wind resource assessments, VRE studies, site measurement campaigns, extreme weather risk assessment and climate scale impact studies.

Digitalisation and software-logo

Digitalisation and software

Advances in digitalisation and remote sensing provide huge potential for enhancing operational performance through data mining and analysis. We are experts in developing custom software tools that transform large, complex data streams into valuable and accessible insights to gain efficiencies, reduce risks, improve asset performance and inform strategic thinking.

Need help with any complex technical challenges?


Our commercial software product, EnergyMetric, combines precision meteorological data with powerful analytics for assessing variable energy production from solar and wind projects. EnergyMetric saves you time and provides rigorous analysis when calculating energy yields, undertaking site assessments or optimising solar and wind portfolios.


EnergyMetric is cutting-edge SaaS software to support the energy transition. From utility-scale solar and wind projects through to complex hybrid portfolios and national roadmaps, EnergyMetric supports accurate generation planning and assessment of renewable energy developments.
