  Solar and Wind Energy Resource Assessment – SWERA

16th of February 2005, 8.30 - 13.00 hours, Room A

The workshop will focus on the activities of SWERA (Solar and Wind Energy Resource Assessment) in Brazil. SWERA is an UNEP project, with co-financing from GEF, created to promote the utilization of the renewable forms of solar and wind energy by removing barriers created by the lack of information and by supporting more informed decision-making, science-and-technology based policy that will ultimately increase investors confidence and interest in renewable energy. Its goal is to survey the solar and wind energy resources in various parts of the world and to evaluate the feasibility of using these resources as renewable energy forms for the sustained development of those areas.

SWERA is also aimed at transforming the ability of target countries to assess the technical, economic, and environmental potential for large-scale investments in solar and wind energy facilities. Brazil is one of the 14 target countries where SWERA activities are taking place. This workshop will present the current status of SWERA activities in Brazil with the aim of disseminating its major objectives and products.
