Professional Experience

He has more than 11 years of experience in solar resources. In 2004 he begins his professional career working at Plataforma Solar de Almeria (PSA) developing the data acquisition system and the software for the BSRN station of the PSA. From 2005 until February, 2009 he did his Phd studies at CIEAMT, Spain’s National Laboratory for Energy Research.(www.ciemat.es) in solar energy forecasting. Afterwards, he joined IrSOLaV (www.irsolav.com) doing different tasks which cover all the phases needed by CSP and PV projects. At present he is working in QEERI. He is an expert in solar radiation estimation from satellite, creation of solar energy maps, analysis of ground measured data and solar energy forecasting. Luis Martín appears as co-author in several works presented to national and international congresses and scientific journals in the field of the solar energy. He has been awarded in 2011 for his paper ““Prediction of global solar irradiance based on time series analysis: Application to solar thermal power plants energy production planning”” as the best scientific publication for Solar Energy journal by the International Solar Energy Society.
