The maps provided in this resource result from a surface wind modelling tool called MesoMap that estimates the wind potential over the Brazilian territory by simulating the atmosphere dynamics of the wind regime and the related meteorological variables from validated atmosphere pressure-data sam
This wind resource atlas identifies wind characteristics and distribution of wind resources in Oaxaca, Mexico, at a wind power density of 50 meters above ground.
The Renewable Energy Toolkit (REToolkit) provides a set of tools to assist in improving the design and implementation of on-grid, mini-grid, and off-grid renewable energy projects.
This short report overviews the Global Environment Facility's involvement in funding energy efficiency projects globally.
This report discusses the importance of developing a "portfolio approach" as a workable solution for carbon-dependent and restrained countries.
This report discusses the value of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies for developing countries and identifies financial approaches for CCS demonstration. It also addresses a major barrier of CCS development: high-capital cost and energy penalties.
This article discusses the potential for developing countries to generate revenue while also reducing emissions due to the decision to include carbon capture and storage (CCS) procedures in CDM project activities.
The Global Environment Facility has supported technologies including solar thermal heating, solar thermal power, off-grid and on-grid solar photovoltaic, wind power, small hydro power, geothermal power, and biomass in projects globally.
This report provides an overview of distributed generation, its applications, and the benefits it may confer onto developing nations. This report discusses off-grid deployment as well as grid-side benefits and costs.
