Knowledge of the solar energy resource is essential for the planning and operation of solar energy systems. In past years there has been substantial European and national funding to develop information systems on solar radiation data, leading to the situations that several data bases exist in parallel, developed by different approaches, various spatial and temporal coverages and resolutions including those exploiting satellite data. By comparing these products the users may end up with different results for the same requested sites. The MESoR project has defined a number of benchmarking measures and rules and applied them in several benchmarking exercises. This paper will show key results. To ease access to the data a new broker portal has been developed. The paper will show how it can be used to retrieve data or to make data available within the portal.
