Implementation Strategy for a Global Solar and Wind Atlas

Publishing date: April 2012

The Global Atlas for Solar and Wind Energy project aims to create a collaborative internetbased Geographic Information System (GIS) for wind and solar resources that can direct and enhance cooperation on global scenarios and strategies and support decision-making, especially in areas where existing information is insufficient.
The idea of the Atlas, an initiative of the Clean Energy Ministerial’s Solar and Wind Working Group, first took shape in a series of international workshops in 2010. The CEM, a 20-year initiative backed by the ministers of 24 countries to accelerate the global transition to clean energy, has already evaluated a prototype and is refining it to better represent user data needs and integrate additional tools and data sets.
