Solar & Wind Energy Resource Assessment (SWERA)

swera.jpgThousands of megawatts of new renewable energy potential in Africa, Asia, South and Central America have been documented through the multi-million dollar project, the Solar and Wind Energy Resource Assessment (SWERA). SWERA is an assessment that includes data on wind and solar energy potential, plus detailed country energy analyses in 13 partner countries.
According to United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Executive Director Klaus Toepfer, SWERA is good example of international cooperation that can produce positive environmental and social outcomes, saying “as energy planners seek cleaner energy solutions using renewable energy technologies, the availability of reliable, accurate and accessible solar and wind energy information is critical and can significantly accelerate the deployment of these technologies.” Check out the article from the Environmental News Services
