The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) developed the Global Atlas for Solar and Wind to help countries with assessing the renewable resources available and creating a deployment plan that will bring the most benefit. To do this, the Global Atlas integrates resource and potential maps with socio-economic data, policies, support mechanisms, and infrastructure data. IRENA continues to grow partnerships on the project, and as a result, the data availability and atlas resources will continue to expand.
