Wind Energy Decision Tree

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) have developed new tools designed to test underutilized sites and contaminated land for solar and wind energy potential. The alternative energy "decision trees" leverage NREL's knowledge of renewable energy technologies and EPA's experience in returning contaminated lands to productive use. The Wind Energy Decision Tree is a useful tool not only for projects on contaminated lands but also for general siting. The tools and a podcast on the solar and wind decision trees are now available on EPA's website.

Wind Power Prospector

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory's Wind Power Prospector is a mapping and analysis tool designed to help developers site large-scale wind farms by providing easy access to wind resource datasets and other data relevant to siting wind power projects.
