What it is[edit | edit source]

Geospacial Energy Mapper (GEM) software is a free, online mapping tool provided by the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Laboratories Consortium. Communities can use it to identify potential energy resource areas and energy corridors in the United States. The tool was developed by the U.S. Department of Energy's National Laboratories Consortium, and is housed at Argonne National Laboratory, in Illinois. GEM was previously known as the Energy Zones Mapping Tool or EZMT. GEM includes roughly 300 data layers that can be useful in planning any kinds of energy and water infrastructures.

Examples of Energy Zones Mapping[edit | edit source]

These examples are drawn from literature searching and do not necessarily represent case studies in the use of the GEM itself. The examples are chosen to provide ideas for mapping projects at different scales.

Solar Mapping Projects[edit | edit source]

The Nature Conservancy, Long Island (New York) Solar Roadmap -- The Nature Conservancy and Defenders of Wildlife created the Long Island Solar Roadmap (the Roadmap [published in 2020]) with the aim of advancing deployment of mid- to-large-scale solar power on Long Island in a way that minimizes environmental impacts, maximizes benefits to the region, and expands access to solar energy, including access to benefits by underserved communities.
