The Renewable Energy Atlas of Vermont is a GIS-based website that identifies, analyzes, and visualizes existing and promising locations for renewable energy projects. The Atlas is the first tool of its kind in the United States that enables end users to click on their town (or several towns or county/counties) and select existing sites and resource potential from a thorough suite of renewable energy options: biomass, efficiency, geothermal, hydroelectric, solar, and wind.
We need your help! There is currently no database that contains existing geothermal sites in Vermont. The Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund and Lyndon State College are asking your assistance to populate the Atlas website with your geothermal system. Lyndon State is also interested in monitoring geothermal system performance to better understand the potential for this technology in meeting Vermont’s heating needs, and the differences between different types of geothermal systems under actual field conditions.
