Geospatial Data Science Research

NREL's geospatial data science research produces datasets, maps, and tools that determine which energy technologies are viable solutions across the globe.

Our researchers use a geographic information system (GIS) to manipulate, manage, and analyze multidisciplinary geographic and energy data. The GIS includes hardware, software, data, and scientific expertise and is used for analysis, modeling, and the development of applications and visualizations.
