A new POWER home page with enhanced responsive GIS-enabled web data services and mapping capabilities replaced the SSE site on June 13, 2018. This current set of SSE web applications and website is no longer accessible. The new POWER will include improved solar and meteorological data with all parameters available on a 0.5-degree global grid. 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. You will now be redirected to the new POWER site.
