FEMP Screening Map Application: Explore the Market Potential for Various Solar Technologies
The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) has worked with the Geographic Information System (GIS) staff at the NREL to create federal energy management program maps showing the market potential for various solar technologies throughout the country. This application examines the viability of three solar technologies in the United States with a high-level annualized economic calculation, with and without potential savings from available renewable energy incentives at the state and federal level. This map allows users to access the results of those calculations, look in more detail at their areas of interest, and overlay other layers, such as renewable energy resource data for solar, wind, biomass, and geothermal, that may be relevant to planning renewable energy projects. Cost-effectiveness data for other technologies besides solar are under consideration.
