Renewable Energy Resource Mapping in Pakistan

Project Details
Project Leads: Anjum Ahmad and Oliver Knight
Primary Government Counterpart: Alternative Energy Development Board
Project ID: P146140
 

Biomass mapping: Full Advantage, with SIMOSOL, VTT, PITCO and the National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST) as sub-contractors

Scope and appointed consultants: Solar mapping: DLR, with CSP Services and PITCO as sub-contractors
 

Wind mapping: 3E, with DTU Wind and Sustainable Energy Services International (SESI) as sub-contractors

Outputs

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.
