SWERA

In curation License 

The SWERA Programme was a collaboration of worldwide partners with a mission to provide information on renewable energy resources for countries and regions around the world. Funding and support for the SWERA Programme concluded in 2011, at which time all programme data and information were transferred to OpenEI for long-term availability.

The programme partners, which included the U.S. Department of Energy and NREL, are no longer supporting or maintaining the data. OpenEI has archived the data and is making it publicly available for historical purposes. While the data may be useful for historical reference, it is suggested that users interested in global renewable resource data consult more recent resources.

Here are a few suggested resources to get started on exploring more current and available renewable resource data:

###Solar###
* [Global Solar Atlas](http://globalsolaratlas.info/)
* [U.S. National Solar Radiation Database](https://nsrdb.nrel.gov/nsrdb-viewer)
* [Renewable Energy Data Explorer](https://www.re-explorer.org/)
* [IRENA Global Atlas for Renewable Energy](https://irena.masdar.ac.ae/)
* [NASA Surface Meteorology and Solar Energy: Global Datasets](https://eosweb.larc.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/sse/global.cgi)

###Wind###
