Description:

Abstract:

This study was conducted to estimate the potential for producing hydrogen from key renewable resources (onshore wind, solar photovoltaic, and biomass) by county in the United States and to create maps that allow the reader to easily visualize the results. To accomplish this objective, the authors analyzed renewable resource data both statistically and graphically utilizing a state-of-the-art Geographic Information System (GIS), a computer-based information system used to create and visualize geographic information. Land-use and environmental exclusions were applied to represent the most viable resources across the country. While wind, solar, and biomass are considered major renewable resources, other renewable energy resources could also be used for hydrogen production, thus contributing to hydrogen development locally and regionally. These additional resources include offshore wind, concentrating solar power, geothermal, hydropower, photoelectrochemical, and photobiological resources. This study found that approximately 1 billion metric tons of hydrogen could be produced annually from wind, solar, and biomass resources in the United States. The greatest potential for producing hydrogen from these key renewable resources is in the Great Plains region. In addition, this research suggests that renewable hydrogen has the potential to displace gasoline consumption in most states if and when a number of technical and scientific barriers can be overcome.

Purpose:

Estimate the potential for producing hydrogen from key renewable resources (onshore wind, solar photovoltaic, and biomass) by county for the United States

Positional_Accuracy:

Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:

Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:

The geospatial part of this data set was extracted from the 2000 Census Version TIGER/Line® files (CD–ROM edition). The positional accuracy of the TIGER/Line coordinates varies with the source materials used but at best meets the established National Map Accuracy standards (+/- 167 feet approximately) where 1:100,000-scale maps from the USGS are the source. The Census Bureau cannot specify the accuracy of feature updates added by its field staff or of features derived from the GBF/DIME-Files or other map sources. Thus, the level of positional accuracy in the TIGER/Line files is not suitable for high-precision measurement applications such as engineering problems, property transfers, or other uses that might require highly accurate measurements of the earth's surface.

Process_Step:

Process_Description:

The following steps were performed by ESRI for Data & Maps 2002: Extracted 2000 Census tract geography from GDT Dynamap/Census Boundaries v4.0, and then aggregated it into counties (the boundaries, therefore, are consistent with the boundaries of the Census tracts and have all of the detailed vertices necessary to maintain consistency with the tract level of detail). Added demographic attributes from Summary File 1 (SF1). Added farm attributes from 1997 Census of Agriculture. Added Pop2001 attribute from ESRI Business Information Solutions. Converted Hawaii to North American Datum of 1983 (NAD83) by splitting it from the rest of the United States; converting it to NAD83; then merging them together. Recalculated any attributes based on area. Created ArcGIS™ layer file (.lyr) and ArcView legend file (.avl). Copied projection file (.prj), and created spatial indices.
