  • Assessment of renewable energy resources
    Solar and Wind Energy Resource Assessment (SWERA) provides easy access to high quality renewable energy resource information and data to users all around the world. Its goal is to help facilitate renewable energy policy and investment by making high quality information freely available to key user groups.  SWERA products include Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and time series data, along with links to energy optimization tools needed to apply these data.
  • Planning for climate change, including NAMAs and MRV
    Multi-Criteria Analysis for climate change (MCA4climate) aims to develop a methodology that will address the multi-faceted dimensions of climate policy planning.  It seeks to go beyond assessing policies based on conventional economic cost efficiency criteria, and explores as well the additional opportunities and risks that any climate mitigation or adaptation action might have on societies, the environment and the economy.
  • Industrial energy efficiency
    The objective of this project is to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases by identifying and implementing energy efficiency (EE) improvements as an integral part of Cleaner Production (CP) assessments in industrial enterprises
  • Bioenergy planning
    Contains an overview of activities and publications that UNEP is conducting in regards to bioenergy in order to enable informed decisions, improve the analytical basis, develop tools and engage in building capacity.
