Renewable Energy (RE) is becoming more and more important for the supply of the increasing global energy demand, GIS can support the process of RE integration in many ways, such as finding potential areas for solar, biomass, and wind power plants; estimating the RE potential at macro- and micro scales integrating physical modelling; and analysing the technical, economic, and social impact of RE projects.
Identification of optimal sites for solar, wind and biomass.
Topographical surveys for planning of power plants
Impact Reports of RE projects on environment
Estimation of solar, wind power potential
