This article presents the latest parameters and delivery methods that provide global solar energy and meteorological resources on the Internet. Over the past several years the number of parameters in the Surface meteorology and Solar Energy Data Set has tripled. The newest parameters include solar geometry, a suite of wind speed and wind direction data, diffuse, direct normal and tilted surface solar irradiance. Requests by users and recommendations by the renewable energy industry have prompted the growth.
