MAPS OF RENEWABLE ENERGY RESOURCES

http://www. nrel. gov/gi4s/indexoLmaps. html

This site provides dynamically generated maps of renewable energy resources that determine which energy technologies are viable solutions in the United States. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) analyzes the resources and inputs the data into the GIS (Geographic Information System). The software package that is being used is an ESRI product called ArcIMS (http://www. esri. com). The following sets of maps are available:

Renewable Energy Atlas of the West: Interactive maps with zoom-in capability that highlight the wind, biomass, geothermal, and solar resources in the 11 western states.

Federal Energy Management Program Maps: Maps showing the market potential for various technolo­gies at federal facilities throughout the country.
