Global Atlas for Wind & Solar Energy

Global Atlas for Wind & Solar Energy

Existing maps and data collections of solar and wind energy resources are often narrowly focused, inconsistent, incompatible and limited. Some provide only information about physical information such as insolation or wind speed. Others focus on economic and policy frameworks, such as support mechanisms. Different systems, websites and maps use various data sources, services, resolutions and geographic coverage. No existing system gives access to accurate, reliable and consistent information on renewable energy resources over the entire globe. Data consistency is crucial to compare and develop strategies, take joint decisions, and speak a common language. The vision underlying the Global Atlas for Solar and Wind Energy is to develop a system capable of consistently addressing each geographic scale, for each renewable energy technology that will act as a host to the ongoing ...
