The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) Global Atlas aims to provide access to a set of geographical information layers, which enables users to highlight areas of opportunity for developing renewable energy projects. The Renewable Energy Unit of the Institute for Energy and Transport (IET) of the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC) provided thematic data layers to the publically available geoserver of IRENA. The data layers were resulted by research on renewable energy and rural electrification options in Africa. The research has been done within the framework of the ‘Renewable Energy Mapping and Monitoring in Europe and Africa’ action (REMEA) and the research program of the African Renewable Energy Technology Platform (AFRETEP).
