Global Photovoltaic Power Potential by Country

Description: 

This dataset contains the GIS data used in the report, "Global Photovoltaic Power Potential by Country" generated by Solargis (https://solargis.com) with funding provided by the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP). The study summarizes global solar resource and PV power potential on a country and regional basis. Analysis is based on Solargis's high-resolution datasets, and GIS mask layers which are downloadable via the 'resources' tab. A country comparison spreadsheet is also provided as an additional download, which provides indicators of...

Offshore Wind Technical Potential in WBG Client Countries

Description: 

This record contains the tabular data (xlsx) and poster maps that accompanies the information provided in the the WBG report published in October 2019 titled,
"Going Global: Expanding Offshore Wind to Emerging Markets", linked below. Following on from the report, the same methodology was used to generate maps for all WBG client countries with a coastline and with offshore wind resource. Some regional maps (Caribbean Islands, Caspian Sea, Black Sea) were also generated. In some cases maps were generated to illustrate the absence of any resource, to support discussions with clients....
