Libelium partners SmartDataSystem cloud platform to attack Solar

Getting 5 or ten basis points of improvement in a solar panel installation can be the difference between making money and making a lot of money, most of which will then be re-invested back into more capacity. This week Libelium, has partnered with SmartDataSystem, which runs a hardware agnostic cloud platform, to build a system which uses IoT sensors to make solar more profitable. The idea is to use Libelium Waspmote sensors to report back to a controlling system on Solar outputs, typically the Performance Ratio or PR. This is the percentage the installation is performing at compared to its best possible output from the original design. PR has to be maintained at between 80% and 90% to get sufficient…
