Geospatial Forum Series, Spatial Analysis of Renewable Energy Potential in the Greater Southern Appalachian Mountains, Dr. Andrew Arnette, Assistant Professor of Decision Science, UW College of Business

October 28, 2013

This research discusses the implementation of a geographic information system (GIS) for the simultaneous discovery of multiple types of renewable energy sources. In particular, the GIS model analyzes wind, solar, and biomass potential within the greater southern Appalachian region. The location and availability of biomass is specifically considered in the context of potential co-fire generation within existing coal plants, while the availability of wind and solar power are based on both resource strength and the geographic, topographic, and regulatory constraints. The results of this analysis were then integrated into an optimization model that balances costs and emissions, as well as examining the impact of public policy on renewable energy development.
