Climate-proofing of buildings

Status date: 13 September 2021

Energy auditing determines the building’s energy performance before its renovation.

The key component of any energy audit is climate data.

Outdoor temperatures are used to assess the performance of heating systems.

Solar radiation is used to assess the performance of photovoltaic systems.

Using MeteoInsight, these data no longer need to come from distant weather stations and be manually post-processed.

OGOR YIELD

Status date: 21 September 2021

OGOR YIELD estimates the maize yield at different levels: field, farm, county, region, country, for all agricultural seasons, starting with 2017.Knowing the yield at field level allows to decrease input costs, to optimize logistic and storage costs and ultimately to increase farmers profit.

DHI Global Seas

Status date: 18 September 2020

DHI Global Seas allows you to reduce fuel consumption and to improve your vessel performance. This is done by utilising satellite data enriched ocean current, wave and wind data that is easy to integrate and with known and proven high accuracy. The native cloud digital service are available as API, file delivery and web map service online 24/7.

Making green buildings greener

Status date: 29 January 2021

Air quality impacts our health and our quality of life. Most of us spend 90% of their time indoors - but do we know if the air quality in our homes is good?

In this project, Airmine outlines smart home solutions to improve air quality in homes. We develop hyper-local outdoor air quality nowcasts and forecasts using data from our outdoor air quality sensors. By integrating local air quality data with smart home systems, the user can take predictive measures that can improve indoor home health.
