Geo-referenced information system for renewable energy (GIS)


The Geo-referenced Information System for Renewable Energy (GIS) is a tool to present a set of technical data related to the energy field that can be seen in interactive online maps. The tool was developed by the Observatory for Renewable Energy in Latin America and the Caribbean (UNIDO).

Renewable energy sources have an important contribution to meet the growing energy demand in a sustainable manner. These energy sources have a wide geographical distribution, which complicates planning for the development of a particular region.

The GIS shows effectively the location of different energy sources in the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region, the production potential, the existing generating systems using renewable energy, experts and institutions related to renewable, etc.
