The Renewable Energy Policy Network REN21 launched its Renewables Interactive Map (beta-version)
Jan 15, 2010 - REN21
The Map contains a wealth of information on renewable energy, including support policies, expansion targets, current shares, installed capacity, current production, future scenarios, and policy pledges.
The Map can be found on the REN21 website, at http://www.ren21.net/map
The REN21 Secretariat collects the information from various reports, databases, news announcements, specific enquiries, and other sources.
Designed as a central access-point to renewable energy information, the Map is dependent on the knowledge contributions of many organisations and individuals in the renewable energy community. REN21 strives to cite the sources for all the information presented, so that users can access further information directly.
As the network of the renewable energy policy community, REN21 has provided authoritative information for several years, in particular through its Renewables Global Status Report. As a new tool for REN21’s knowledge management, the Renewables Interactive Map is designed to track more closely the dynamic development of renewable energy policy-making and market development, and to provide disaggregated information for specific countries and technologies.
The REN21 Secretariat wishes to thank the network partners for their support in producing the Map, and invites all experts to provide data contributions and comments for the Map, which is still a beta-version.
REN21 is a global policy network that provides a forum for international leadership on renewable energy. Its goal is to bolster policy development for the rapid expansion of renewable energies in developing and industrialised economies.
