Lium Debuts Satellite Tracking Tool for Utility-Scale Solar Projects

Lium LLC is an energy market research company for institutional users. They have launched solarSAT, a new data product that tracks utility-scale solar projects. The new intelligence product monitors in real-time every large-scale U.S. project’s development through satellite imagery.

This product is available to investors and corporate management teams. It allows them to get detailed information about each large-scale project in development. Data specific to each project includes ground-breaking dates (firstDIRT), panel deliveries and installation, market share and other milestones.

“As an alternative to anecdotes, lagging data, and guesswork, our data science team developed solarSAT to digest thousands of satellite images on hundreds of project locations,” says Daniel Cruise, partner at Lium Research. “With this product, we are hoping to change the way participants make investment decisions in solar.”

The data from Lium solarSAT is compiled into several datasets and summary products each month. Investors have access to real-time, carpet level intelligence on solar growth.

“Early users of solarSAT are enjoying higher conviction on their market theses, gaining business development advantages, and are surprised less often. They know what’s coming and from who and where before the rest of the market thanks to this product,” continues Cruise.
