Launching the Renewable Energy Data Explorer: Data and Analysis to Enable Renewable Energy Decisions (Webinar)

6 June 2017

The Clean Energy Solutions Center, in partnership with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, is hosting a no-cost webinar on utilizing the Renewable Energy Data Explorer to inform energy decisions.

The Renewable Energy (RE) Data Explorer is an innovative web-based platform that allows users to visualize and analyze renewable energy potential. The RE Data Explorer informs prospecting, integrated planning, and policymaking to enable robust renewable energy decisions. RE Data Explorer tools are currently available for Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Mexico, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines, and the Lower Mekong region of Asia.

This webinar will provide an overview of the RE Data Explorer tool and RE geospatial data science, which can examine, for instance, the spatial relationship of wind speed-or wind resource-to other pertinent information, such as locations of environmentally sensitive areas and transmission lines. The webinar will walk through analysis tools within the RE Data Explorer that practitioners can use to enable robust decisions.

The RE Data Explorer and the RE Explorer portal are developed by the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory and supported by the U.S. Agency for International Development.

The presentations will be followed by an interactive question and answer session with the audience.
