Renewable Energy Resource Mapping in the Maldives

Project Details
Project Leads: Sandeep Kohli
Primary Government Counterpart: Ministry of Environment and Energy, Maldives Meteorological Service
Project ID: P146018
Scope: DNV GL (wind mapping) and Solargis (solar mapping)

GIS layers for the key solar and wind mapping outputs as well as maps and posters can be downloaded from the Global Solar Atlas and the Global Wind Atlas. All geospatial outputs are also available for visualization via the Irena Global Atlas. The measurement data is published on the EnergyData platform and it is freely available for download. Other outputs are listed below by project component.
