Publicly available studies

Within World Bank’s ESMAP initiative Renewable Energy Resource Mapping, Solargis provided several studies and consultancy reports. This project is part of a broader program of technical assistance in scaling up renewable energy.

  • Solar resource and photovoltaic potential of Nepal (March 2017)
    The objective is to improve the awareness and knowledge of resources for solar energy technologies by producing a comprehensive countrywide data set and maps based on satellite and meteorological modelling.
