GRASS GIS modules

Renewable energy including biomass or hydropower

Overview

r.green computes the residual energy potential of different renewable energies like biomass or hydropower. The tool is organized in the modules r.green.hydro and r.green.biomass for which are composed of several programs considering different limits (e.g. theoretical, recommended, legal, technical, ecological and economic constraints). These different scenarios can be compared so that the residual energy potential and the suitable places for constructing a new power plant can be identified.
