The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and partners are developing a “Global Atlas for Solar and Wind Energy,” and they’re looking for input from end users to help them do so. The Atlas is designed to “facilitate the deployment of renewable energy technologies and enhance investment by sharing the necessary information on resource potentials and related socioeconomic and policy conditions, by means of a unified public domain dataset,” UNEP explains.

Those interested in taking the 10-minute on-line end user survey, as well as checking out UNEP’s Solar and Wind Energy Resource Assessment (SWERA) data and tools can do so at http://umfrage.ded006.cyberlink.ch/index.php?sid=53352&newtest=Y&lang=en

The Atlas can be used for market screening that can help investors raise money for more detailed assessments by commercial service providers, UNEP notes. It stops short of providing the more detailed, higher resolution spatial and temporal data and “bankable” information required for project development that private companies involved in carrying out high-resolution resource assessment provide, however.

Surveys can be completed anonymously, unless respondents choose to disclose their identities, and the “aggregated assessment of responses will not allow for attributing specific answers to individual respondents.” All feedback is treated confidentially, UNEP points out.
