Mapping Renewable Energy

Mapping Rural Renewable Energy Resources project

In the Falklands, FIDC set out to pull together all available expertise and information on renewable resources and make them available to individual households or businesses on an interactive internet basis. The Trust has made a significant contribution to the project through provision of climate records from the climate change project and was able to source a landscape and environmental consultancy firm in Northern Ireland  (Park Hood Environmental) which has experience in  mapping renewable energy resources. They were given Falklands data on wind, sunshine, cloud cover and rainfall to produce island-wide distribution maps for these (see link to Penguin News article).
