NAME

r.green - Computes the residual energy potential of different renewable energies like biomass or hydropower.

KEYWORDS

raster, biomass

DESCRIPTION

The r.green suite computes the residual energy potential of different renewable energies like biomass, ground source heat pumps, or hydropower.

The tool is organized in the module groups:

for which are composed of several programs considering different limits (e.g. theoretical, recommended, legal, technical, ecological and economic constraints).
These different scenarios can be compared so that the residual energy potential and the suitable places for constructing a new power plant can be identified.

All the modules of the tool r.green can be installed in GRASS GIS as following (see also r.green.install):

g.extension r.green

NOTES

The basis for creating the modules to calculate the energy potential is shown in the following image:
