RE-SAT workshop is a success

The latest news on RE-SAT – our renewable energy planning tool project with the UN Development Programme, Government of Seychelles and the UK Space Agency IPP programme – is that Seychelles stakeholders have had a hands-on experience during a workshop. The IEA project team held the workshop this week (July 10-14) outlining progress on the proof-of-concept demonstrator that combines EO data and ground observations to support renewable energy planning in Small Island Developing States (SIDS).

IEA chosen to join UN showcase

The IEA’s innovative renewable energy project – RE-SAT – was selected to feature in the UN’s Public Service Forum 2017 in The Hague on Friday, June 23. Our success in using satellite and environmental data to develop a proof-of-concept energy planning tool is supporting the Government of Seychelles in transitioning to renewable energy.
