No PV Gis data available


Recommended Posts

Hello Teun,

PVGIS has updated their service. However, we have not yet updated our service to provide automated data from PVGIS. It has also not yet been decided whether we will offer it at all. However, you can still use the data, just go to the PVGIS homepage https://re.jrc.ec.europa.eu/pvg_tools/en/tools.html#MR and extract the monthly radiation data. You can then import this data into PV*SOL as measurement data (https://help.valentin-software.com/pvsol/2019/pages/system-type-climate-and-grid/meteosyn/#create-new-location).

Kind regards,

Hi Patrik,

we would recommend to get the TMY data from PVGIS, this would be the most reasonable option to simulate a PV system:


You can then transform the *.csv file into a *.dat file that you can import into PV*SOL, following these instructions here:


Unfortunately, you can't import longer periods than one year. If you want to simulate real years, you would have to import one *.dat file for each year and then simulate them separately.


Hope that helps!
