Renewable Energy Sources Map provides the answer

A Renewable Energy Sources Map (RESMAP) has been provided to the Georgian Energy Development Fund during a special meeting organized by the EU-funded energy programme INOGATE, Caspian Energy News ( reports with reference to the EU Neighbourhood Info Centre.

The main aim of geospatial mapping RESMAP is to help national governments, investors and suppliers estimate the renewable market in country, answering important questions such as "How much energy capacity can be developed and what tariffs will be needed? " or "How much resource might be developed, where, at what cost and with what return, for a range of tariff/discount rate combinations?"

“The RESMAP allows you to look at various different scenarios of economically viable wind and solar energy resources, at different combinations of tariffs, discount rates and capital costs, whilst screening out areas that are unavailable for development,” says Mark Allington, INOGATE Technical Secretariat Expert.

INOGATE is planning to expand its RESMAP to Azerbaijan, Moldova and other counties in the near future.

INOGATE is an EU-funded programme promoting international energy co-operation between the European Union and the Partner Countries of Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan and other counties. It works to support the EU policy frameworks of the Baku Initiative, the Eastern Partnership – Energy Security Platform and the Energy Community.
