Understanding Albedo and its Effects on Solar Energy Systems

Albedo, or the reflectivity of a surface, plays a significant role in the performance of solar energy systems. Hukseflux offers albedometers, which measure both incoming and reflected solar radiation to calculate albedo. This information is crucial for accurately estimating the overall energy balance and efficiency of solar installations, especially in areas with highly reflective surfaces like snow or ice.


Ensuring Proper Instrument Calibration for Accurate Measurements

To maintain accurate measurements and reliable data, it is essential to perform regular instrument calibration. Hukseflux provides calibration services for pyranometers, pyrheliometers, and other instruments. Regular calibration ensures your instruments provide accurate and reliable data, allowing you to make informed decisions about your renewable energy systems. Detailed information about calibration procedures can be found in the How to Calibrate a Pyranometer guide.
