This article presents a comparison of global radiation data at different sites at the Scandinavian Peninsula. It makes use of ground truth, modelled and satellite derived surface global radiation data. First, a quality control of the ground truth data is conducted by evaluating measurements against the clear sky radiation estimated by a reliable model. Second, global radiation data derived from the geostationary satellite Meteosat are compared to the ground truth data.
