Welcome to the site of the Solar Energy Laboratory of the National University at Uruguay (UDELAR)

We are focused in achieving a detailed knowledge of Uruguay’s solar resource. Its spatial and temporal variability is a fundamental input for designing and evaluating solar energy devices and systems.

The following topics are researched or sustained in this lab

  • Maintainance of a ground-based solar radiation monitoring network.
  • Calibration of radiometers under ISO norms.
  • Modelling, including nowcasting, of the solar resource.
  • Development and testing of prototypes for solar thermal applications.
  • Passive solar techniques for buildings.
