Solar and Wind Energy Resource Assessment (SWERA)

The SWERA Programme, was a collaboration of worldwide partners with a mission to provide information on renewable energy resources for countries and regions around the world. Funding and support for the SWERA Programme concluded in 2011, at which time all programme data and information was transferred to OpenEI for long-term availability.

OpenEI has since archived the data and is only responsible for hosting of the data, making it publicly available for historical purposes. The programme partners, which included the U.S. Department of Energy and NREL, are no longer supporting or maintaining the datasets. While the data may be useful for historical reference, it is suggested that users interested in global renewable resource data consult more recent resources to obtain data and information.

Here are a few suggested resources to get started on exploring more current and available renewable resource data:
