Sponsored byRE Explorer, USAID, National Renewable Energy Laboratory
About this EventThe Renewable Energy (RE) Data Explorer—or RED-E—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.
