SWERA - Solar and Wind Energy Resource
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.
