As the world transitions toward renewable energy to address the urgent need to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, it is crucial to better understand the land requirements of these resources in order to reach targets as sustainably and cost-efficiently as possible. The objective of my research is to expedite the wind farm siting process through the creation of a high resolution, first-of-its-kind, country-wide atlas for the United States. The atlas includes both social and technical considerations for wind energy development and identifies the constraints and opportunities in the United States based on a realistic calculation of onshore wind potential. By creating a highly detailed, publicly available atlas that highlights the best locations for wind project development in each state, policymakers and wind farm developers will be able to make more informed decisions about the feasibility of project development, while making it less expensive, uncertain, and time-consuming, thus accelerating the transition to 100% clean, renewable energy.
