The SoDa Service contains many free and for-registered services (or resources) and its content is evolving as additional resources (databases, algorithms, end-user applications) are populating the SoDa Service. The services are organised in categories of services or domains (e.g., air quality, or solar energy systems). The list of the services for free is available in green here. If you are only interested in free irradiation values, use this link.

The Eumetsat agreement stipulates that we can provide to our Customers the Meteosat-derived products with a minimum delay or 24 hours without additional fee. In order to be allowed to provide the irradiation values as soon as they are avaible on our server, we had to purchase an additional annual fee, that we must partly pass on our annual subscription prices, if the Customer makes the request for the "near real time" option.
