Abstract : A successful integration of solar energy into the existing energy structure highly depends on a detailed knowledge of the solar resource. HELIOSAT-3 will supply high-quality solar radiation data gained from the exploitation of existing Earth observation technologies and will take advantage of the enhanced capabilities of the new Meteosat Second Generation MSG satellites. The expected quality represents a substantial improvement with respect to the available methods and will better match the needs of companies and other customers of the resulting products. These goals will be achieved by an improvement of the current semi-empirical Heliosat calculation schemes see section 2 as well as by the development and establishment of a new type of calculation scheme. This new type will be based on radiative transfer models RTM using the information of atmospheric parameters retrieved from the MSG satellite clouds, ozone, water vapor and the GOME-ATSR-2 satellites aerosols. Within this paper, the new type of the solar irradiance calculation scheme, including the functional treatment of the diurnal variation of the solar irradiance, is described.
