Interactive Map Locates Renewable Energy Resources

A new, free-to-use geospatial application, developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), allows users to easily and accurately map potential renewable energy resources in the United States. The electronic map, called RE Atlas, is available online at http://maps.nrel.gov/re_atlas. According to Dan Getman, leader of the team that developed the map, it will serve as “an excellent tool for policymakers, planners, energy developers, and others who need to better understand the renewable resources available in the United States.”


 

Designed to assist energy policy development, investment, and education by making the information accessible and easy to understand, this geospatial tool creates dynamic maps of renewable resources, including biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar, wind, and even wave power. Resources can be displayed individually or together, and data can be referenced by state, county, congressional district, federal lands, and EPA contaminated lands.
