RenSMART has developed a renewable energy estimation model. The model references several publicly available and (highly regarded) renewable energy databases that give estimated renewable energy resources for locations covering the whole of the UK.
We combine this information with information on the energy you use, how you use it througout the day and year, and the type of renewable energy technology you are considering.
Our model has been developed in such a way that the accuracy of the estimate can be improved by including personalised information about your location but can also be used with average information taken from leading energy use profiles.
Once a renewable energy technology has been installed at a location, the model can then be used to compare generation with the original estimates and live weather data taken from a number of sources.
This information can be used to alert our members if their installation is not performing as expected and give reports on energy generated and how it was used.
