This task aims to provide quality solar and wind resource assessment data. Stat-of-the-art weather stations have been established at five strategically in-land selected sites in Kuwait. The data set covers Direct Normal Irradiance (DNI), Global Horizontal Irradiance (GHI), and Diffuse Horizontal Irradiance (DHI). Moreover, other measurements are acquired, and they include wind speed and direction, humidity, perceptible water, wet bulb/dry bulb temperatures, and visibility, and aerosol measurements.
