Energy Zones Study: A Comprehensive Web-Based Mapping Tool to Identify and Analyze Clean Energy Zones in Eastern Interconnection

Research output: NRELTechnical Report

Abstract

The Energy Zones Study was carried out by the Eastern Interconnection States' Planning Council (EISPC) in collaboration with three U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Laboratories. The multi-laboratory effort was led by Argonne National Laboratory (Argonne) in collaboration with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The main purpose of theEISPC Energy Zones (EZ) Study was to develop a comprehensive mapping tool that would enable EISPC members and other stakeholders to identify areas within the U.S. portion of the Eastern Interconnection that are suitable for the development of clean (low- or no-carbon) electricity generation. This report details the methodologies used in developing the tool's many features and databases.
