The Energy Institute at Istanbul Technical University has renewable energy equipment for research and education; two wind turbines, different kind of solar modules using diverse technology and a meteorology station. The aim of the project is to build up a real time, on-line data collection system for collecting and broadcasting all of the renewable energy production facilities and weather station‟s data in one terminal at the laboratory of the institute. The study first makes an overview on some renewable power technologies, describing how they operate and analysing them, follows explaining the particular energy facilities at the institute and how they collect data and finally tries to develop a system based on the software Labview to save, monitor and analyse in real time all the data produced by that equipment together.So on, on the pages below the reader will find a description of the equipment and it‟s technology, how they collect data and how this project helps to improve it. With this information the institute pretends to build a higher project to monitor, control and study the little renewable plants installed and compare the theoretical values and the real ones in this specific location for the period studied. The project finds out that more time and resources is needed to develop the whole system but tries to define and build a part of it, and in the final pages makes some suggestions to continue with the project.
