SWERA - Solar and Wind Energy Resource Assessment

May 24, 2005 - Development Gateway Foundation

The SWERA clearinghouse provides information about solar and wind energy resources in thirteen partner countries around the world. Products held in the SWERA archive include data on wind and solar energy potential, plus detailed country energy analyses. A map and a menu provide links to country specific data. SWERA is a UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme) project with co-financing from Global Environmental Facility. Its goal is to provide solar and wind energy assessments to potential investors and the public to promote more effective use of alternative energy resources. The data provided was largely provided by remote sensing.
