DLR presentation clean energy ministerial global atlas for solar and wind

  1. 1. Clean Energy Ministerial Global Atlas for Solar and Wind Energy Carsten Hoyer-Klick, Nicolas Fichaux (IRENA), Jake Badger (DTU/Wind), Thomas Wanderer, Dan Getman (NREL) www.DLR.de • Chart 1 > The Global Atlas for Solar and Wind Energy > Carsten Hoyer-Klick et. al > ICEM 2013
  2. 2. History of the political process • Within the technology action plans of the Major Economies Forum for COP 15 in Copenhagen, a need for a global atlas for solar and wind energy was identified • The process was split in the Major Economies Forum and the Clean Energy Ministerial. A multilateral working group for solar and wind energy was formed, headed by Denmark, Germany and Spain. • The global atlas is developed in the framework of this multilateral working group. • IRENA joined and became the secretariat of the process www.DLR.de • Chart 2 > The Global Atlas for Solar and Wind Energy > Carsten Hoyer-Klick et. al > ICEM 2013
  3. 3. History of the political process • The atlas was presented at the ministerial meeting in April 2012 in London and officially launched during the IRENA General Assembly in January 2013. www.DLR.de • Chart 3 > The Global Atlas for Solar and Wind Energy > Carsten Hoyer-Klick et. al > ICEM 2013

  6. 6. Target 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 www.DLR.de • Chart 6 > The Global Atlas for Solar and Wind Energy > Carsten Hoyer-Klick et. al > ICEM 2013
  7. 7. Open Architecture – Collaborative Information Systems www.DLR.de • Chart 7 > The Global Atlas for Solar and Wind Energy > Carsten Hoyer-Klick et. al > ICEM 2013 Data Provider Data Provider User interfaces Solar resources A (e.g. DLR) Solar resources B (e.g. NREL) Live Sensor Data Measurement stations, Sattelite data Knowledge Database Policy data base e.g. IEA, UNEP, REN21 Communication with open and standardized internet protocols Set up of the architecture within the framework of GEOSS Data catalog
  8. 8. Providing Data to the Global Atlas • Data must be available on a webservice following the OGC (Open Gespatial Consortium) standards, WMS (Web Mapping Service), WFS (Web Feature Service), WCS (Web Coverage Service) • Data usually stays with the provider and the provider keeps IPR and maintenance. • Alternative hosting options e.g. though Masdar are available if data owners do not want to host themselves • Data sets should be added to a GEOSS compliant catalog to be searchable by the global atlas • On the formal side usually a data sharing agreement between IRENA and the provider is signed www.DLR.de • Chart 8 > The Global Atlas for Solar and Wind Energy > Carsten Hoyer-Klick et. al > ICEM 2013
  9. 9. Development of the Atlas • The core WEB-GIS application is a collaborative work of DLR, NREL and Masdar. • DLR is coordinating the development of the WEB-GIS platform • Builiding upon • DLR projects EnerGEO, Endorse, SolarMed Atlas • NREL project around OpenCarto • The catalog is contributed by Mines ParisTech www.DLR.de • Chart 9 > The Global Atlas for Solar and Wind Energy > Carsten Hoyer-Klick et. al > ICEM 2013

  11. 11. Tools • The atlas framework has an interface to add tools for processing and analyzing the data • Processing tools have to follow the OGC WPS (Web processing service) standards • Processes can be handled asynchronously. If processes take long processing times, they can be detached and accessed later when the processing is done. www.DLR.de • Chart 11 > The Global Atlas for Solar and Wind Energy > Carsten Hoyer-Klick et. al > ICEM 2013
  12. 12. Tools Example: CSP-GIS from the Endorse Project • Find suitable locations for CSP power plants • Assess the potential for the technology (how much suitable area is available www.DLR.de • Chart 12 > The Global Atlas for Solar and Wind Energy > Carsten Hoyer-Klick et. al > ICEM 2013

  15. 15. Summary • The global atlas is governed by a political process from the clean energy ministerial process, the secretariat is headed by IRENA • The global atlas creates an open standards geospatial infrastructure to search, visualize and process geo data relevant to renewable energies • It is a collaborative system in operation and development to be extended. • Upcoming work • Improvement of the atlas framework • New RE data sources: Biomass, Geothermal, .. • New Tools • We need communities as these to gather new ideas for new analysis tools www.DLR.de • Chart 15 > The Global Atlas for Solar and Wind Energy > Carsten Hoyer-Klick et. al > ICEM 2013
