  • How does it work?The Global Atlas became available online in January 2013. The system is totally decentralised, and connects to databases on different servers worldwide. The list of servers is not limited, so many institutes and countries can contribute quality information. Data sources are connected based on standards developed by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS). The data remains property of the data holder, and no transfer of archive is necessary. The data can be maintained and updated easily by providers. This choice of data-sharing technology choice enables the initiative to be open and inclusive.If you wish to know more, all tutorials for the Atlas are provided online, in the form of short videos.
  • The IRENA global atlas is a large international initiative, putting you a click away from major data sources to estimate your solar and wind potentials. This is an example on the region, showing the average winds calculated over 30 years, all protected areas, and population density every 1km. Zoom in, and start looking into areas of interest. You can even add your own data to improve the analysis.
  • The Atlas does not replace a ground measurement campaigns, but it can help you explore for suitable sites at which ground measurements can be done. Some tools are under development to help you assess resource potentials in particular areas. This is an example of an existing tool which gives you access to historic values of the resource for every location. Some more advanced features allow you to perform site ranking, or highlight opportunity areas, for further investigation.The interface is very flexible, and even lets you create your own project, pulling data from a catalog of 300 wind and solar resource maps.

What amount of investments does it represent? How many jobs ? Is there a large enough market for sustaining a supply chain?
    13. 13. Bridge the gap between nations having access to the necessary funding, technologies, and expertise to evaluate their national potentials, and those deprived of those elements.  Access to data and methods  Access to training materials and courses  Access to finance  Access to a network of experts 13

    16. 16. How is the work organized? • The Steering Committee meets during the IRENA Assembly. Intermediate meetings are organized at IRENA Councils and other ministerial events – CEM, GBEP. • The Secretariat is made of a team of 3 persons in IRENA Abu Dhabi. • The working groups meet twice a year, during expert meetings or workshops . Experts are designated by the participating countries, and invited by the Secretariat. • The end-user group is constantly keep informed of the developments – newsletter, website, and can contact the Secretariat at any time. The end-user network meets once a year in Abu Dhabi WFES. • Additional ad hoc task forces are created for a temporary issue – ex data quality for solar and wind, capacity building for solar and wind. • Participation is voluntary. Financing is shared between country contributions and IRENA’s core budget. 16

    40. 40. What is the Global Atlas? • A free, open source, open standards Global Spatial Data Infrastructure  A global public library of renewable resource maps – 300 + datasets included  The information is not copied or duplicated, and existing services are integrated  Data owners use freely the platform to disseminate and reference their own datasets  Depending on the IP restrictions, the links can be used by the Atlas online GIS, the data owners and their project partners, and the general public • The GIS interface is online and freely accessible. Basic users can access information and perform basic analyses. • ‘Advanced’ users can create their own online project maps, embed those in their webportal, and use the online tools on their own datasets. 40
    41. 41. Ongoing work and next steps • Integration of Countries’ solar and wind data – display, point data • Additional datasets coming online – DTU, CENER, NASA, others • Significant improvements to the Atlas GIS • Capacity Building for the Atlas • Roadmap for Geothermal energy • Roadmap for Bioenergy • Hydropower? • Technical Assistance 41
