COWRIE (Collaborative Offshore Wind Research into the Environment)
The Crown Estate
  COWRIE was set up by The Crown Estate as an independent body to carry out research into the impact of offshore wind farm development on the environment and wildlife, evolving into a charity which has gained global recognition for its scientific and educational work.
DOE Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Program
US Department of Energy (DOE)
  The mission of the US Department of Energy Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Program is to reduce petroleum use, greenhouse gas emissions, and air pollution and to contribute to a more diverse and efficient energy infrastructure by enabling the widespread commercialization of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. The Program Records area contains supporting data for DOE publications, described as Program-related, Analysis, Fuel cells, Production/delivery, Safety codes, and standards and Storage
EOLTECH Wind Energy Index (IREC)
  Since 2011, Eoltech has published its wind energy index on 3 major regions of wind power development in France. Today, this indicator of regional wind resource is updated each month on 7 major regions, to allow operators and financial partners of projects to put their park production into the general perspective of the available wind resource.
JRC Photovoltaic Geographical Information System (PVGIS)
EU Joint Research Centre Institute for Energy and Transport
  Photovoltaic Geographical Information System (PVGIS) provides a map-based inventory of solar energy resource and assessment of the electricity generation from photovoltaic systems in Europe, Africa, and South-West Asia. It is a part of the SOLAREC action that contributes to the implementation of renewable energy in the European Union as a sustainable and long-term energy supply
MEDIN (Marine Environmental and Information Network)
Various data archives
  MEDIN is public-private alliance to provide a marine environmental data centre. Dataset metadata can be searched by keyword or interactive map using the data discovery portal, providing a federated search across other data repositories. Searches can also be done by themes via the reference layers. Data can also be lodged in MEDIN with standardised metadata
Marine Data Exchange
The Crown Estate
  The Marine Data Exchange provides access to survey data and reports collated during the planning, building and operating of offshore renewable energy projects. There are two divisions: Wind and Aggregates. Wind consists of raw, cleaned and modelled wind datasets from various meteorological masts, LiDAR systems and meteorological buoys around the UK. Aggregates includes Marine ALSF Regional Environmental Characterisation Surveys (RECs).
Meteonorm: Irradiation Data for Every Place on Earth
  Global solar irradiation data. Over 30 irradiation, temperature and more climate parameters are available.Meteonorm contains worldwide weather data in over 35 data formats.The database is fed by 8325 weather stations worldwide as well as by five geostationary satellites with global coverage. Meteonorm delivers monthly, hourly and per minute values.
OES Ocean Energy in the World
Ocean Energy Systems Energy Technology Initiative (OES)
  GIS map of all known wave and tidal energy installations in the world. Annual detailed reports per country are also available for the 23 member countries. The Ocean Energy Systems Implementing Agreement (OES) is an intergovernmental collaboration between countries, operating under the framework of the International Energy Agency (IEA).
Phyllis2: Database for biomass and waste
ECN Biomass & Energy Efficiency (Energy research Centre of the Netherlands)
  Phyllis is a database containing information on the composition of biomass and waste. From Phyllis you can obtain analysis data of individual biomass or waste materials or average values for a group of materials.
Renewable energy planning database (REPD) monthly extract
Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC)
  The Renewable Energy Planning Database (REPD) is updated and published every month. It provides DECC with robust data that is used to track renewable electricity projects as they move through the planning system. The REPD shows projects that have applied for planning permission in the previous month or earlier for projects with a capacity greater than, or equal to, 1MW. It reflects the latest position known to DECC. The first tab of the Excel spreadsheet sets out the definitions, and the second tab is the database. Some sites may appear more than once, such as where applications have been re-submitted or a separate application for an extension has been made. Historical data back to October 2014 is available on application to DECC.
Stefan Pfenninger of ETH Zürich and Iain Staffell of Imperial College, London. allows you to run simulations of the hourly power output from wind and solar power plants located anywhere in the world. We have built this tool to help make scientific-quality weather and energy data available to a wider community. See for further details.
The Wind Power
The Wind Power
  The Wind Power is a set of databases covering wind farms, turbines, manufacturers, developers, operators and owners worldwide, with market information. Downloads are available for each database, plus photographs and maps, and analysis of the wind power market. There is an interactive map.
UK Wind Energy Database (UKWED)
  The Wind Energy Database (UKWED) contains data about operational onshore and offshore wind projects. As well as headline figures, the list of projects can be searched or browsed, with projects shown as a list or on a dynamic map. UKWED only holds information on projects of 100kW and larger. Statistics on micro, small and medium wind turbines are published annually in the Small and Medium Wind UK Market Report
Wave & Tidal Knowledge Network
Various sources
  The Knowledge Network is a web-based system which facilitates data exchange in the emerging wave and tidal energy industry.
