Urbasun

Assess solar irradiance in urban areas

In addition to wind data analysis provided by UrbaWind, UrbaSun software provides solar irradiance data analysis in urban areas. UrbaSun is intended for architects, environmental and Renewables consultants, urban design engineering offices.

As UrbaWind for wind studies, with UrbaSun you can carry out pedestrian comfort studies, buildings thermal performance studies or solar energy potential studies for urban PV systems.
