Perry Institute for Marine Science and the University of Wyoming International Program
This project will focus on assisting the Perry Institute for Marine Science (PIMS) in utilizing geospatial tools to create a detailed renewable energy plan, which can be employed as a showcase for other facilities within the Bahamas, principally the Exuma Islands. It is the hope of the PIMS to provide other entities and investors the opportunity to see first-hand how their current and proposed facilities can harness these renewable energies specifically wind and solar and at what cost. PIMS recognized the potential advantage of utilizing GIS and GPS tools to conduct an initial inventory of their energy needs and requirements. To accomplish this, they have asked WyGISC to lead in the mapping efforts.
