This web application, in French, provides fast life cycle assessments (LCA) of the environmental impacts (climate change, water, resources, ...) of photovoltaic systems and their uncertainties. It is based on simplified models involving few parameters, generated automatically with our library lca_algebraic.

This tool is a web-based interactive service to assess the current and prospective (2050) environmental performance of the production, transportation and use of photovoltaic systems at screening level. Maps of PV environmental performances are provided for a worldwide coverage.

This WebGIS Client provide access to in-situ measurement available on-line. It is part of the existing webservice-energy SDI (Spatial Data Infrastructure). See below for further information about the SOS platform.


This platform enables (i) visualisisation of sensor locations on a map, (ii) visualisation of measurements as time series as plots and in tabular form, (iii) display of sensor metadata at different levels of detail,  (iv) computation and statistical representation of time series according to the types of in-situ measurements (eg. solar 2D view, wind roses) and (v) download of observation data for offline processing.

It is based on the 52°North SWE (Sensor Web Enablement) solution respecting OGC SOS (Sensor Observation Service) standard and GEOSS recommendation on interoperability.

Calls on the McClear clear-sky model returns the global and beam irradiances averaged over a selected time for a selected location (worldwide coverage) and a selected period as well as a number of other quantities used in the calculation.

The Global Atlas is the comprehensive information platform on the potential of renewable energy. It provides resource maps from leading technical institutes worldwide and tools for evaluating the technical potential of renewable energies. It can function as a catalyst for policy development and energy planning, and can support investors in entering renewable energy markets. Access to the WebGIS Client
