GLRPPR Sector Resource: U.S. Renewable Energy Technical Potentials: A GIS-Based Analysis

Title:
U.S. Renewable Energy Technical Potentials: A GIS-Based Analysis

Abstract:
This report presents the state-level results of a spatial analysis effort calculating energy technical potential, reported in square kilometers of available land, megawatts of capacity, and gigawatt-hours of generation, for six different renewable technologies. For this analysis, the system specific power density (or equivalent), efficiency (capacity factor), and land-use constraints were identified for each technology using independent research, published research, and professional contacts. This report also presents technical potential findings from previous reports.
