Wanted: Map of World’s Renewable Energy

Posted on the 27 December 2012 by 2ndgreenrevolution @2ndgreenrev

Last week we talked about the worldwide map of power plants. This week we’d like to ask if any of our readers can go one better: create a map of the world’s renewable energy installations. This includes solar(PV, solar-thermal, CSP), wind, hydro, biomass, geothermal, wave, tidal, and OTEC.

We’re willing to pay someone to come up with a clever way to display all the data in an easy to use map we can use on the site! Off the top of my head I envision a Google map where we can zoom in to see the location of the installation and click on the teardrop shaped location marker to get a break down of the details of the plant (capacity, size of installation, when built, cost, etc.).  Perhaps something like the plastic bag map would work?
