NREL taps Iberdrola to measure sunshine

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory has teamed with Iberdrola Renewables, Inc., the US subsidiary of Spanish power company Iberdrola, to measure the strength and consistency of sunlight.

The collaboration's measuring stations will be spread across Arizona. They are the first of a nationwide network that will collect data as part of NREL's Solar Resource and Meteorological Assessment Project. The collaboration with energy companies is designed to minimize the risk of building solar energy plants.
