VERMONT LAUNCHES RENEWABLE ENERGY ATLAS!
The Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund (VSJF) recently launched the Renewable Energy Atlas of Vermont, here a state-of-the-art GIS-based web application that identifies, analyzes, and visualizes existing and promising locations for renewable energy projects.
The Atlas is the first tool of its kind in the United States to enable users to
choose their town or county and then select from a suite of renewable energy
options including biomass, efficiency, geothermal, hydroelectric, solar, and
According to Atlas project director Scott Sawyer, “with the proliferation of
energy committees in over 90 towns and cities, it’s clear that Vermonters want a
renewable energy and efficiency based economy.
VSJF believes it’s important to make renewable energy data accessible to everyone, so that citizens, businesses, utilities, state agencies, and organizations charged with building the state’s future can make informed renewable energy project decisions.”
