Renewable Energy Resource Mapping:
The World Bank, in partnership with the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP), is supporting a project aimed at mapping the resource potential of solar and wind energy resources. The resource mapping project is expected to attract investments in the renewable energy sub-sector following the indication of potential power generation from Solar and Wind. The data will be collected for two years. Solar measuring equipment has been installed and real-time data is being collected. For wind, the installations of masts and data collection instruments are almost finalised and the collection of will commence soon.
