ScanTheSun - unique solar installation yield and shading analysis.

ScanTheSun provides unique science based tool for evaluation and optimization of solar installation efficiency without the need of complicated instrumentation and computer modelling software. We provide state of the art solution for setting up solar panels which does not require advanced technical knowledge from the user to produce a comprehensive solar installation report from scratch within 2-3 minutes. Our goal is to enable a real measurement of solar installation features with help of various smartphone sensors that everyone has in the pocket. We help to increase the solar installation efficiency by up to 30% with help of shading analysis, NASA satellite data and by indicating the best panels orientation even in complicated urban or wooded surroundings.

Description
Smartphone application for adjusting PV-panels and solar collectors to get maximum operational efficiency.

ScanTheSun enables minimization of energy loss due to wrong orientation of the panels as well as due to incorrect placement with respect to surrounding trees/buildings. ScanTheSun takes into account 1) shading generated by nearby buildings or trees, 2) local weather conditions (NASA solar energy and meteorology data), 3) solar panels efficiency and optical characteristics data and enables solar panels adjustment even in complicated urban surroundings. ScanTheSun is designed for solar panels adjustment a) on detached houses, b) on houses in urban areas, c) in PV-panels operated devices in cities or parks, d) in traffic solar devices. ScanTheSun is unique solution since it does not require any complicated instrumentation and computer modelling software. Instead of modelling ScanTheSun makes a real measurement with help of various smartphone sensors. ScanTheSun does not require any advanced technical knowledge from the user to produce a comprehensive solar installation report from scratch within 2-3 minutes. The report presents an intuitive data set for: panels investors (ROI data, efficiency increase), subsidiary institutions (installation efficiency ratings), energy utility and greed operators (predictions of energy production timing).
