A new POWER home page with enhanced responsive GIS-enabled web data services and mapping capabilities will soon replace the current SSE home page with a target date of June 13, 2018. This current set of SSE web applications and website will no longer be accessible after that date. The new POWER will include improved solar and meteorological data with all parameters available on a 0.5-degree global grid. The beta version of the new home page, featuring the updated parameters, schedule updates and FAQ, can be accessed at POWER. Please direct any questions to POWER Project Team.
