Profile

NEO has supported a variety of governments on different levels (national, province, municipality) by providing them the solar panel monitoring service. This information is useful to these clients for different reasons. Most commonly, the solar panel information gives insight in the place of solar panels within the energy transition and the set goals per government. Statistics can either be used to track progress or to plan actions to encourage renewable energy. As the solar panel monitoring service provides highly up-to-date data the effectiveness of their renewable energy strategy is increased. NEO provides the solar panel data through API, which allows customers to integrate the data in their own internal viewer or combine this with secluded governmental information. If they wish so, customers can also publish the solar panel information to reach out to its population and create motivation for participating in their renewable energy strategy.

NEO monitors solar panels throughout the Netherlands using deep learning methods. Solar panels are detected using various resolutions of satellite and aerial imagery. The panels are digitalized by the algorithm and related to 3D-roofs based on the AHN (Dutch national height model) to calculate zenith and azimuth angles. This data, combined with data such as solar power, allows NEO to estimate the power output for each object. Solar panels are also provided with parcel and address information and statistical reports, so customers can easily apply the data and relate it to internal registrations.

Mutation Signalling on agriculture parcels in the Netherlands

NEO signals changes to agriculture parcels. Monitoring, based on satellite imagery in combination with artificial intelligence, aims to detect changes in the boundaries of the parcels. The service saves time and money because, based on the mutation signalling, parcels can be looked at more specifically to determine the new parcel boundaries. This supports the process of keeping the national LPIS (Land Parcel Identification System) registry up to date. The service that NEO provides is unique: it is the first time that mutation signalling based on earth observation is performed automatically on this scale. In this way the 500.000 parcels in the Netherlands are monitored. Open data from the national satellite data portal in the Netherlands is used.

EO based phytoplankton biomass service
Inland Water, Assess and monitor water bodies   , Local and regional planners, Regional governments, City authorities, Environment, Utilities (water, electricity, waste) , Water plants, Coastal management agencies
Using knowledge about how certain substances, such as one of the main pigments of the phytoplankton (Chlorophyll a - Chl a) alter the colour of the water, these parameters can be derived from optial Earth Observation (EO) satellite sensors. Water Insight provides monitoring services of Chl a based on EO data which is validated with in situmeasurements. Also the maps of WFD phytoplankton biomass status classes are created, by application of the WFD tresholds on Chl a as a proxy for phytoplankton biomass. The maps are made available in a portal, which allows to follow the lakes in time, zoom and download maps and time series.
