BrightHub is an innovative online platform designed to take the pain out of wind & solar resource data management by organising all of your data in one place. The platform is the latest development in the digitalisation of resource assessment and follows in the footsteps of BrightWind’s open-source Python library for the automation of wind data analysis, released in 2019.

After over two decades wrestling with poorly structured wind data, BrightWind’s analysts have been heavily involved in the development of the IEA Wind Task 43 Wind Resource Assessment (WRA) Data Model, resulting in an internationally recognised standard to describe how a measurement station is configured.

Based on this WRA Data Model, the team at BrightWind have built BrightHub, a comprehensive wind & solar resource data management platform. As wind analysts, we know how hard it can be to understand how a given measurement station has been configured and maintained during its lifetime. BrightHub provides a repository for these configurations stored in the WRA Data Model format, allowing the wind analyst immediate and frictionless access to the data in a meaningful way. In addition to providing a secure repository for proprietary data, BrightHub also provides open access to a growing number of publicly available datasets in the same standard format, all of which can be accessed via a GIS style interface.

  • Comprehensive Data Management: BrightHub is a centralised repository for wind & solar resource data, documentation and configuration metadata from met masts, LiDARs, SoDARs, floating LiDARs and solar measurement stations. This makes all the necessary resource data for a consultant’s bankable EYA conveniently accessible in one place.
  • IEA Wind Task 43 WRA Data Model Integration: By adopting the WRA Data Model, BrightHub addresses the challenges of data traceability and interoperability. Users are empowered to confidently track data provenance and ensure data integrity through the project lifecycle, while allowing frictionless integration between different software applications and tools.
  • Automated Insights: Storing data in this standardised format serves as a foundational element for automated data analysis, enabling rapid generation of insights. BrightHub’s intuitive interface already empowers users to store, monitor, clean, and track issues with their data in real time, but with API access, the possibilities for innovation are only limited by the user’s imagination.
  • The Definitive Repository for Open Data: A growing number of public wind & solar datasets are being added to BrightHub by a vibrant community of wind & solar energy professionals and researchers, encouraging industry wide collaboration and innovation in renewable energy. BrightHub also provides open access to reanalysis timeseries data from nodes across the entire globe.
  • Effortless Collaboration: BrightHub fosters collaboration by enabling owners to effortlessly share their data with permitted third parties.
  • Security: BrightHub’s robust Identity and Access Management (IAM) system ensures that proprietary data can only be accessed by the intended users.
