Global - Dams Database

Primary tabs

This database contains parameters gathered after an assessment of the technological potential for development of floating solar photovoltaic (PV) projects on existing hydropower dams and other reservoirs, starting with a pilot in FY18 focused on West Africa and India gathered from World Bank hydro projects. This database has been expanded to include the International Hydropower Association (IHA) dataset for India: https://energydata.info/dataset/india-hydropower-databaseIt also includes data gathered from the FAO's public Aquastat database for Africa: http://www.fao.org/aquastat/en/databases/damsThis dataset also contains data gathered from the public Global Reservoir and Dam Database (GRanD) for Africa.The database will be included in the Global Solar Atlas (http://globalsolaratlas.info/) where they will be directly linked to the solar resource through the Floating Solar module. The purpose of the resulting Floating Solar Atlas is to enable potential developers or stakeholders to quickly navigate to the site of interest and obtain information about the potential for development of a floating solar PV project. Following the FY19 updates, the database will continue to expand to other regions until a global dataset has been completed.The current coverage spans the continent of Africa and India only, with upcoming updates to include other continents.
