Geo-Information System for Renewables

Acronym: GIS-RE


This collection contains the dataset produced in the framework of the project GIS-RE (Geo-Information System for Renewables).

In GIS-RE, the opportunities provided by renewable energies for the low carbon society are assessed by means of geographical analysis (GIS) and technological cost data. The availability and exploitability of raw resources for renewable energy production is assessed with a special emphasis on Europe and Africa. Because of its complexity, emphasis is on a mix of statistical and geographical methodologies, tools and models for a geo-spatial analysis of the economic potential of different biomass feedstock for bioenergy production.
