Meteonorm generates accurate and representative
typical years for any place on earth. You can choose from more than
30 different weather parameters.
The database consists of more than 8,000 weather stations, five geostationary satellites and a globally calibrated aerosol climatology. On this basis, sophisticated interpolation models, based on more than 30 years of experience, provide results with high accuracy worldwide.
An open system
You can import of any third party data, be it from satellites or from measurement stations and still profit from all tools inside Meteonorm.
The intuitive desktop software lets you to easily manage your sites and retrieve the required results in a convenient and fast way. More than 30 different output formats offer maximum flexibility.
More than a simple data provider
Meteonorm includes two of the best minute models on the market for reliable simulations of large PV plants or energy management & battery systems. It can model urban heat effects to support the development of green cities. It contains algorithms to calculate extreme years, for example to test design limits. You can even simulate Climate Change using IPCC scenarios.
The first version of Meteonorm was published as paperback handbook in 1985. Ten years later, Meteotest transferred the handbook to a desktop software. In 1998, the coverage of the climate data was extended from Switzerland to the whole world. The global breakthrough was reached with version 6 – back in 2007.
Today Meteonorm has more than 2,000 active users and is included in almost every PV, solar thermal or building simulation software on the market.
Meteonorm is not only a desktop software: For digital applications, our web service API and our Dynamic Link Library DLL ensure platform independent access to all data and models of Meteonorm, from everywhere. This allows the intergration of Meteonorm data in web applications, simulation software, building design software or building information modelling applications.
All this makes Meteonorm a global standard and a powerful tool for solar energy applications, building design, heating & cooling systems, education, agriculture, forestry and many more.
Current data can be accessed online directly from the software. User data can also be imported.
Meteonorm contains several climate change scenarios, so you can also plan for the future.
Over 30 Parameters
Global radiation, direct radiation, temperature, precipitation, humidity, wind and many more.
Meteonorm delivers monthly, hourly and even minute values.
More than 35 output formats are available: CSV, TMY2, TMY3, EPW, PVSol, PVSyst, Polysun and many more.
