Deliverables
Deliverable Date
A global portal for renewable potentials will be available end 2012. 2012
Tested indicators will be developed for each datasets (solar and wind), future advanced datasets would incorporate an uncertainty estimate. 2013
Through active and wide participation of supporting countries, data on bioenergy, geothermal and hydropower will be added to the atlas. 2014
