GEO Summer Schools
Should support the strategic objectives of GEO I&D:
• Networking activities that specifically build individual, institutional and
infrastructure capacity.
• Leveraging dedicated resources for Earth observation capacity building
efforts.
• Uptake of Earth observation in policy and decision making.
• Enhanced participation of Developing countries in GEO and GEOSS
and in addition:
• Link to other SBAs: ecosystems, health, agriculture, impact
assessment of human activities
• Direct support to tasks: Bioenergy Atlas, AfriGEOSS

2nd EnerGEO Summer School - outcomes
ASSESSMENT AND ENERGY POTENTIAL OF
BIOMASS IN UGANDA
CHALLENGES
The Biomass energy challenge in Uganda
is centered on lack of a mix of energy
sources in power generation, low level of
access to modern energy, inadequate
infrastructure for generation, transmission
and distribution and low level of energy
efficiency.
2nd EnerGEO Summer School - outcomes
Solar energy strategy for Uganda
RECOMMENDATIONS:
Empowering institutions with knowledge
of solar energy for sustainability
We need to implement and maintain a
Spatial data infrastructure SDI- to obtain
the right information at the right time for
the right purpose
achievements
• Linking EU & African energy research
• Linking Geomatics & RE research at Makerere
University
• Linking Spatial RE assessment & donor agencies
• Initiating collaboration between RE Research in
Kenya & Uganda
• Enlarging the community for the Bioenergy Atlas for
Africa incl. the Africa-EU Energy Partnership and
IRENA
• Advocacy for GEO Data Sharing principles
challenges
• Coordination between GMES & GEO
Evaluation report on a Bioenergy Atlas for Africa proposal
(SPACE call 2013)
– …. is essentially based on recommendations which come from the
EO/GEO community and does not demonstrate that it addresses enduser needs.
– …. the added value of the project is more explicit at the level of
international initiatives rather than on GMES and the proposed
project's end-users.

2013 – Utrecht The Netherlands
