Scientific or industry publications using Solcast data

Solcast itself has a research background, and our data is widely used in the scientific community. We salute public researchers, and all those working to advance the state of the art (and science).

NOTE: Solcast provides public researchers with free data credits. If you’re currently a researcher or student at a university or other public research institution, you’ll be eligible for free data credits when you sign up, and you can write to us to request further credits, too.
