Progresses on the Global Solar and Wind Atlas, Data Quality Information Framework and concept for the Global Renewable Energy Atlas, Nicolas Fichaux, IRENA

  1. 1. World Future Energy Summit The Global Atlas for Renewable Energy Abu Dhabi, Dec. 20th, 2014.
  2. 2. 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. 2
  3. 3. Some da ta sets of the Globa l Atla s 3
  4. 4. Map gallery – information accessed easily
  5. 5. Da ta qua lity DTU Wind; NREL; Masdar Institute; DLR; Vortex; MINES ParisTech; Suntrace; CENER; ISES; 3Tier; Sander & Partners; NASA. Based on: UNEP-SWERA, GEO, ISO data quality reference systems Internal data quality – 14 unique indicators External data quality – 4 categories - EDUCATION - POLICY - POTENTIAL - +BUSINESS 5
  6. 6. Demonstra tion on ECOWAS within GEOSS AIP-6 Presented a t the GEO-X Ministeria l Summit Geneva , Ja n. 14-17th, 2014 6 http://irena.masdar.ac.ae/?map=507
  7. 7. Upcoming developments (sola r a nd wind) • Implementation of the data quality information framework • Major upcoming developments:  Zoning capability  Socio-economic data linkage - IEA-IRENA policy database; Ren21; World Bank  ‘Universal’ data reader – wind roses, monthly distributions  Proposal for analysis tools – simulators including data uncertainty  Language  Next - explore the ability to share measurement data (AIP – 7). – with ESMAP  Capacity building  Opening to all renewable energies 7
  8. 8. Bioenergy tra ck • A REPOSITORY - For each individual study, a separate map focused on the studied area, referencing each individual layer, and referencing precisely the source of information, and methodology used to create the dataset. • The Atlas would also reference information of relevance for stakeholders interested in bioenergy. Base information such as e.g. soil maps, land cover, land use, topography, population density, water resources, others. The information would be accessible through the data catalog. • SUSTAINABILITY? 1/ inform the users of the Global Atlas GIS of the existence of the GBEP indicators and provide the opportunity to access more detailed information currently accessible only from the GBEP website 2/ guidance document on mapping bioenergy resource [in partnership with GBEP] 8
  9. 9. Geotherma l tra ck 2 consultation workshops – co-organised with IGA, EGEC, GRC, CNR and Enel Greenpower Strategy: • Integrating existing and general datasets to inform policy makers – ex. Canada, Australia, Alberta, Poland, Spain, Ireland… • Building synergies with existing data infrastructures – ex. US NGDS, EuroGeoSurvey, OneGeology • Sharing knowledge by referencing more detailed datasets – ex. Lithology, fractures • Promoting education by creating a section of the Global Renewable Energy Atlas website. 9
  10. 10. Tra ining module – sola r a nd wind • Typical maps would need to be developed, and stored in the Global Atlas for practical illustrations. • Take into account climatic conditions. • To maximize its impact, the content of the training module should be disseminated, in order for universities or energy agencies to adapt the materials to their own needs and use for internal training purposes. • Several languages should be available. 10
  11. 11. Colla bora tions of the Globa l Atla s • Solar, Wind - Multilateral solar and wind working group of the Clean Energy Ministerial • Bioenergy - Global Bioenergy Partnership • Geothermal - International Geothermal Association, Geothermal Research Council, US National Geothermal Data System, OneGeology • Data standards - Global Earth Observation, Open Geospatial Consortium • Datasets – private sector, institutes, multilateral initiatives, government agencies 11
  12. 12. Side event presenta tions  Demonstration of the Global Atlas in the ECOWAS region. Nicola Bugatti/Jafaru AbdulRahman, ECREEE.  Upcoming datasets: Global Wind map.
