REsource, a freely accessible online knowledge platform, captures and illustrates renewable energy growth patterns. By linking to IRENA’s full knowledge library, REsource provides information on renewable energy market statistics, potentials, policies, finance, costs, benefits, innovations, technologies, education and other topics. REsource aims to improve decision-making, increase public awareness, promote investor confidence, and accelerate the overall deployment of renewable energy technologies.
IRENA collects data from different sources, including member states, international organizations, local and regional organizations, specialized data providers such as associations, and makes informed estimates based on analysis.
The REsource platform includes a specific Climate Change Dashboard, which provides information on the contribution of renewable energy in countries' nationally determined contributions (NDCs) and an Avoided Emissions Calculator.
