    • Global Atlas: Status and Perspectives N. Fichaux, IRENA
    • ABOUT IRENA GLOBAL ATLAS: CONTEXT WHAT IS THE GLOBAL ATLAS? 2
    • ABOUT IRENA 3
    • Membership IRENA Innovation and Technology Centre (IITC), Bonn, Germany Status of Permanent Observer to the United Nations in New York Headquarters in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates 45 Signatories/ States in Accession 115 Member States + European Union as of Juney 2013  Established in 2011  Approaching universal membership © IRENA 2013 4 China to join IRENA  Decision announced at 3rd Assembly, 13 Jan 2013
    • Mission, Vision and Mandate Mission: Promote the widespread and sustainable use of renewable energy worldwide How: Serve as centre of excellence, advisory resource, and network hub for renewable energy Scope: All renewable energy sources Bioenergy Geothermal Hydropower Ocean Solar Wind Energy Energy Energy Energy © IRENA 2013 5
    • IRENA 3rd Assembly  Around 1000 registered participants  137 countries represented  Over 80 Heads of State/Government or Ministers  Adopted 2013 Work Programme and Medium-Term Strategy  Coincided with Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week13-14 January 2013, Abu Dhabi, UAE © IRENA 2013 6
    • Medium-Term Strategy CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE HUB  Advocacy and information dissemination  Global, universal, unbiased  Outreach and awareness raising  Costing Alliance  Global Atlas  GREIN  Regional approaches  Renewables Readiness Assessment  Capacity building  IRELP  Policies and Measures Database © IRENA 2013 7 Global Voice for Renewable Energy RESOURCE

    • Global Atlas 12 What share of my energy mix can be supplied by renewable energy? Where are the resources located? What is the most cost-effective combination of technologies? What amount of investments does it represent? How many jobs ? Is there a large enough market for sustaining a supply chain?
    • 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

    • 15 Global Renewable Energy Atlas Steering Committee Secretariat and coordination IRENA Solar and Wind Technical Group CEM, 2010 Bioenergy Technical Group GBEP, 2013 Geothermal Technical Group 2013 Hydropower Technical Group 2013 Marine Energies Technical Group 2014 End-user network 2012
    • 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

    • Part I - Data Infrastructure and Sharing 20 WHAT IS THE GLOBAL ATLAS?
    • Existing application – maps.nrel.gov/SWERA 21 FAO BEFS for Tanzania Example of data integration from data to the Atlas Existing application – http://www.solar-med- atlas.org/ Mali solar and wind
    • Step1: registering the data on a geoserver 22
    • Step 2: Remote registration to the catalog 23
    • Full description, ownership and references are preserved 24
    • Consequence 1: Data appear in Atlas interface library 25
    • Consequence 2: larger data dissemination 26
    • Consequence 3: WMS can be used by third parties, other projects and initiatives 27
    • 28 FAO Geocatalogue (simulation) GeoSur (simulation) Consequence 4: linking data networks
    • 29 Geoserver Geoserver Geoserver Geoserver Geoserver Geoserver Geoserver Geoserver Geoserver Geoserver Geoserver Geoserver Geoserver Geoserver Geoserver Geoserver Geoserver Geoserver Geoserver Geoserver
    • Intellectual property? • If the data has IP restrictions – signature of a data sharing agreement with IRENA • IP remains with the data owner • Data sharing and download can be limited on demand • Service can be modified or stopped from data owner’s end • The catalog can handle private and public data 30
    • Part II - Data visualization and analysis 31 WHAT IS THE GLOBAL ATLAS?
    • January 2013
    • Vocabulary 33 Map = sum of activated layers User interface Layer Legend and tools
    • 34 Wind speed, population density, protected areas
    • 35 Detailed site information
    • Consequence 1: Data appear in Atlas interface library 36
    • Create your own project 37
    • Country map example – can be project based 38
    • Using the interface in your own website 39 Data are promoted in an interactive manner without having to develop an online GIS. Just add 1 line: <iframe style="border: none;" width="512" height="256" src="http://irena.masdar.ac.ae/?ma p=299&mode=static"></iframe> Or <iframe style="border: none;" width="512" height="256" src="http://irena.masdar.ac.ae/ifram e.html?map=299&mode=static"></if rame>
    • 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
    • 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
