Researchers associated with institutions in Saudi Arabia, the Gulf region, and around the world can use the Atlas to understand renewable resource characteristics, contribute to technology development, and support a wide variety of scientific, policy, and planning studies.

Researchers require accurate and representative time series data to understand the characteristics of renewable energy resources and the environment in which renewable energy technologies will be deployed.  Many Saudi Arabian universities, technical institutes, and technical colleges are also serving as solar monitoring stations hosts, gaining opportunities for hands-on access to resource data in partnership with K.A.CARE.
