This project is solving the Renewable Energy Explorer challenge.
This project is about discovering renewable energy potential for Australia (and perhaps extendible to include whole earth). We collect data from Australia's Bureau of Meteorology and process how much energy could be extracted from the user's current latitude and longitude using renewable sources.
Once computation has completed, we send the data to the user's phone.
The project has three incremental phases, first phase is building complete infrastructure and showing the data regarding the current location of user. In the second phase we will add the ability of getting data from one location that user taps. The last phase is providing an API for crowd-sourcing of data input.
