Executive Summary

NASA is supporting solar energy, energy-efficient building, and agriculture industries by developing contiguous environmental data sets spanning the time period from the early 1980's to near real-time via the Prediction of Worldwide Energy Resource (POWER) project. Through the POWER project, insolation on a horizontal surface produced at NASA Langley Research Center under the GEWEX (Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment) Surface Radiation Budget (SRB) project and the CERES (Clouds and Earth Radiant Energy System) Fast Longwave and Shortwave Radiative Fluxes (FLASHFlux) project, along with meteorological data from NASA's Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO), are provided via a user friendly web-based data portal.
