Report: U.S. Renewable Energy Technical Potentials: A GIS-Based Analysis

Abstract
Renewable energy technical potential as defined in this report represents the achievable energy generation of a particular technology given system performance, topographic limitations, environmental, and land-use constraints. The primary benefit of assessing technical potential is that it establishes an upper-boundary estimate of development potential.
