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).
