U.S. Maps of Potential Renewable Energy Resources

NREL publishes e-maps of renewable resources
11 January 2012 - A new geospatial application developed by the US Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has been published, offering users access to accurate maps of potential renewable energy resources in the United States.

RE Atlas is designed to facilitate energy policy development, investment, and education by making high quality data accessible and easy to understand. read more>>>
