Usage of renewable energy sources (RES) – is a modern powerful trend in energy development. “Green energy” technologies (technologies of gathering energy from renewable sources) are actively developed and will allow in the future significantly to reduce use of non-renewable resources (oil, gas, coal, peat), reduce the ecological impact of energy plants, improve the ecology around populated areas, reduce the cost of obtaining energy in some cases, increase the autonomy of life support systems and energy security of the country. RES are spatially distributed resources that depend on various factors. Thus, heterogeneous data and correctly defined factors are needed to evaluation of renewable resources. Paper considers the processes of RES potential evaluation, factors and data sources available for researchers. We discuss stages of RES potential evaluation, factors that can contribute to or hinder using RES and some data sources which can be used during the process. The Kazakhstan problems are briefly discussed.
