Army uses GIS technology for renewable energy planning By James Russ and Nicole Sikula (US Army Environmental Command) www.army.mil April 8, 2014The U.S. Army Environmental Command provides geospatial services for a variety of operations and organizations throughout the Army. Among those are the geospatial analyses and customized mapping support that USAEC contributes to the Energy Initiatives Task Force's effort to meet its goal of 25 percent of all energy consumed on Army installations to be from renewable energy sources by 2025.
The Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Installations, Energy and Environment requested USAEC geospatial services to support EITF in identifying Army lands that may be available for the renewable energy projects. USAEC developed a "clear parcels" methodology that analyzed installation geospatial data nationwide.
The goal of the analysis was to identify areas on installations that were both suitable for renewable energy projects and that were not excluded due to a variety of mission-related factors. The factors chosen were partially determined by the availability of geospatial data for installations that is maintained in Army Mapper, the Army's official geospatial database of record, and the relevance of the factor in eliminating sites from consideration.
