The solutions of two Polish startups dealing with the use of artificial intelligence may contribute to faster development of solar energy. One of them was used to build the largest photovoltaic farm in Poland.
The solutions of two Polish companies – AI Clearing and Sunmetric can be (or even already are) used for photovoltaic installations of various sizes. The AI technology of the first of these startups is, for example, used in the construction of the country’s largest solar power plant. It is being built on an area of 100 ha in the Budzew commune, in a place where a brown coal mine previously operated. The AI Clearing platform analyzes data, such as photos, from drones on an ongoing basis and compares them with construction documentation, thanks to which you can quickly have access to data on the progress of construction works and their compliance with the schedule or project. This technology can be successfully used in other structures, e.g. in the construction of roads or gas pipelines.
The solution of the second startup, Sunmetric, is intended mainly for cities and municipalities. Its task is to optimize the development of smaller photovoltaic installations. It is able to provide the data necessary for installers, such as the surface of the roofs, the angle of their inclination, and the level of sunlight. The data is collected, as in the previous case, on the basis of photos that are analyzed by artificial intelligence and help in the development of photovoltaic systems.
