The UAE Wind Atlas is aimed at investors, policymakers, and researchers, offering universal access to resource quality, grid, and land use data, helping to efficiently assess the feasibility of renewable energy projects for planning and investment decisions.

The Process:

AGEDI contributed to the UAE Wind Atlas, which was developed by Masdar Institute of Science and Technology.

The scientific work to produce the wind atlas included climate simulations and was carried out in collaboration with 3TIER, a global leader in renewable energy risk analysis, data, assessment, and forecasting for wind, solar, and hydro power projects.

Main Achievements:

The UAE has become the first country in the region to develop its own publicly available wind atlas, which has been integrated into the Global Atlas for Renewable Energy platform of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) as a contribution from the UAE Government in an effort to advance clean energy projects in the UAE.
