World’s First Renewable Energy Resources Atlas Goes Online

In an effort to raise the awareness of just how much potential our planet has to produce renewable energy, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) has launched the first ever online Global Atlas of renewable energy resources.

Live now at www.irena.org/GlobalAtlas, the atlas is the largest ever initiative to help countries assess their potential renewable energy generating potential. It combines data and maps from leading technical institutions across the planet as well as private companies, and currently charts solar and wind resources.

The atlas hopes to expand to other forms of renewable energy during the next two years.

“In the next 10 years we expect a huge rise in the investments in renewable energy. The Global Solar and Wind Atlas will help us make the right decisions,” says Martin Lidegaard, Danish Minister of Climate, Energy and Building, and President of the 3rd session of the IRENA Assembly.

“The Global Atlas provides a powerful new tool in international efforts to double the world’s share of renewable energy by 2030,” said Adnan Z. Amin, IRENA Director-General. “With 22 countries now taking part, and more expected to join in the coming months, it is a clear sign of our growing political will to transition to clean, renewable energy.”
