Site Screening and Feasibility
The first step in developing a renewable energy project is to find a suitable site and assess its feasibility for development. Where should you look? Is the site you’ve found the best one available? Are there any obstacles or challenges that might affect its development? UL can help you answer these and other questions, so that you can objectively assess your options and manage your development risks.
For initial site prospecting we use proprietary resource maps and databases in a GIS-based approach to find the right sites. We factor in preliminary analysis of the resource, distance to transmission, desired set-backs, known environmental limitations, and other important siting factors and provide developers with rank-ordered development opportunities within a set geographical region.
