3TIER, a renewable energy assessment and forecasting company, has announced the public release of wind and solar annual averages from its global datasets as part of Google's Map Gallery launch.

Through its collaboration with Google, 3TIER says it aims to improve access to wind and solar resource information by making it freely available to both researchers and the general public in Google’s platform.

"At 3TIER, our belief is that better information empowers smarter decision-making," says Pascal Storck, 3TIER global director. "Google's mission to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful is well aligned with our goal, and we are thrilled to be a part of this launch.”

Access to 3TIER’s datasets within Google's Map Gallery is available here.
