Abu Dhabi, U.A.E, 16 June, 2015 – Smartphone users can now access the most reliable data on global renewable energy potential, for free, thanks to an application launched today by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). The Global Atlas pocket is the only global tool of its kind, combining 1,000 maps from 67 governments and 50 data centres to provide information on renewable energy resources anywhere in the world.
The app turns mobile devices into renewable energy prospectors and can help answer questions like, can renewable energy power 100 per cent of this island? What percentage of this city can be powered by solar energy? If I want to invest in a wind power project, where are the highest potential locations?
The Global Atlas pocket is the mobile version of the online Global Atlas portal, which aims to provide access to the necessary datasets, expertise and financial support to help countries evaluate their national renewable energy potential.
