Renewable Energy Resource Mapping in Tanzania

Project Details
Project Leads: Ferhat Esen
Primary Government Counterpart: Rural Energy Agency (for small hydro) and Tanzania Electricity Supply Company (for solar and wind)
Project ID: P145287
Project Status:  

GIS layers for the key solar and wind mapping outputs as well as maps and posters can be downloaded from the Global Solar Atlas and the Global Wind Atlas. All geospatial outputs are also available for visualization via the Irena Global Atlas. The measurement data is published on the EnergyData platform and it is freely available for download. Other outputs are listed below by project component.
