The development of new materials and technologies can improve the performance of pyranometers. New types of sensors such as silicon-cell solar radiation sensor can be used to measure solar radiation more accurately, and new materials can make pyranometers more durable and resistant to harsh weather conditions. The use of silicon solar cells can provide a more accurate and consistent measurement of solar radiation. Many companies such as Apogee provide a silicon cell pyranometer. Apogee series pyranometers are silicon-cell pyranometers that are only sensitive to a portion of the solar spectrum, between 350 and 1,100 nm (~80% of total shortwave energy falls within this range). Also, the LightScout Silicon Pyranometer from Spectrum Technologies uses a silicon solar cell as the sensor. This sensor provides a more accurate and consistent solar radiation measurement than traditional thermopile pyranometers. The standards for developing silicon-cell pyranometers must meet the International Organisation of Standardization (ISO) 9060:2018 Class C requirements.

Further, new technologies to improve the overall performance and maintenance of pyranometers are being developed by various organizations across the globe. For instance, the SMP12 pyranometer from Kipp & Zonen uses solid-state dome heating, no moving systems, and best-in-class surge protection to maximize accuracy and reduce maintenance requirements.

A thermopile pyranometer or a thermo-electric pyranometer is a sensor based on thermopiles. It is designed to calculate the broadband of the solar radiation flux density, which varies from 180° field of view angle. With a largely flat spectral sensitivity, a thermopile pyranometer generally measures from 300 to 2,800 nm. In all thermopile technology, irradiation is proportional to the difference between the temperature of the shadow area and the sun-exposed area. In thermopile pyranometers, a thermopile is usually used within the instrument as the thermal gradient, and the sensor is measured across cold and hot areas (black and white). The accuracy depends upon the sensitivity of the material used in the sensors, the distortion characteristics, and the response time of the material constituting the dome (if present) covering the sensors.

It can also be utilized for preliminary findings of malfunction in photovoltaic systems, as a photovoltaic pyranometer’s response is the same as that of a photovoltaic module. Moreover, solar radiation is a great source of zero-emission renewable energy. High-quality, reliable radiation data is crucial in implementing all solar energy sector projects in photovoltaic (PV) and concentrating solar power (CSP) thermal systems.
