For the last 9 months, LQM have been leading the Data4Sustain project; an Innovate UK feasibility study to create a decision support tool for local authorities and other users looking to identify the optimal siting for potential renewable energy technologies and projects. For any given site, the Data4Sustain webGIS identified potentially feasible renewable energy technologies with the ability to drill down into the data to get more details on the likely energy resource (eg irradiance for solar technologies, hydropower potential etc.) and anticipated constraints that may influence the viability of a technology (eg planning restrictions and physical limitations).
To ensure that the D4S webGIS meets the needs of its users, we are holding a free one-day workshop to gather feedback from the wider renewable energy, sustainability and planning communities. Delegates will benefit from a greater understanding of evaluating renewable energy feasibility and use of webGIS as well as being on the inside track with suggesting future developments of the tool. Plus, if you would like to share your own expertise with other delegates, we will have an Information Table where you are welcome to display literature for others to view and take away. More information about the Data4Sustain project and aims of the workshop can be found HERE.
The workshop is a joint event between the Land Quality Management Ltd and East Midlands Satellite Applications Centre of Excellence (EMBRACE) – a consortium supporting the application of satellite data across the East Midlands.
This free workshop will be limited to 50 delegates. It will be held on 7th June 2016 at the University of Nottingham main campus in the Sir Clive Grainger Building, which is located next to the main visitor car park. Lunch and all computing equipment will be provided.
Places are limited so to book places for yourself or a colleague, register online today to avoid missing out on this great opportunity.
