A range of Industries can use the Renewable Resource Atlas to assess options for meeting energy needs at new and existing facilities. For example, energy-intensive industries such as cement factories and water desalination plants can assess where, when, and how solar power could support their needs.
For Industries, most information on the Atlas is currently on solar resources, with limited information on wind resources. Data on geothermal and waste-to-energy resources are not yet available in the Atlas, but most of the available datasets can be mapped, graphed, and downloaded. Unless an industry staff member is particularly familiar with renewable energy resource data, it is recommended that industry contact K.A.CARE to start a discussion on any required tailored analysis. Fine resolution data are also available for viewing or downloading via the Data Options page as paid information.
