The world needs a decarbonised energy sector by the second half of the century. In many energy applications, the necessary technologies are available today, so the important next step is the development of enabling policy frameworks in place to scale up their deployment.
Ambitious national commitments, international agreements and rapid technological progress have prompted countries around the world to turn increasingly renewable energy to expand their power infrastructure.
This free platform, developed by the International Renewable Energy Angency (IRENA), is open for project owners, governments, financiers, and service and technology providers so as to develop and drive investments to new renewable energy projects in Africa.
REsource, the online knowledge platform launched by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), enables users to easily find country-specific data, create customized charts and graphs, and compare countries on metrics like renewable energy use and deployment.
The Global Atlas is an online Geographic Information System (GIS) linked to a number of data centers located around the world. As of 2014, more than 1, 000 datasets are referenced by the catalog of the Global Atlas. All the information in the Catalog can be accessed directly from the Global Atlas GIS interface.
This report, part of a new series by IRENA, explores how renewable energy is financed, produced, distributed and consumed, and will chart the changing relationships it is bringing about between states, corporations and individuals.
