Title: Renewable Resources: a national catalog of model projects. Volume 4. Western Solar Utilization Network Region

Abstract

This compilation of diverse conservation and renewable energy projects across the United States was prepared through the enthusiastic participation of solar and alternate energy groups from every state and region. Compiled and edited by the Center for Renewable Resources, these projects reflect many levels of innovation and technical expertise. In many cases, a critique analysis is presented of how projects performed and of the institutional conditions associated with their success or failure. Some 2000 projects are included in this compilation; most have worked, some have not. Information about all is presented to aid learning from these experiences. The four volumes in this set are arranged in state sections by geographic region, coinciding with the four Regional Solar Energy Centers. The table of contents is organized by project category so that maximum cross-referencing may be obtained. This volume includes information on the Western Solar Utilization Network Region. (WHK)

  • Regional sponsors, in cooperation with the Water Resources Council, surveyed and analyzed State and Regional viewpoints on current and future water problems. The problem area surveyed includes all of the states of South Carolina and Florida and parts of the states of Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana.
  • The Preliminary Inventory of Hydropower Resources (PIHR) a preliminary product of the National Hydropower Study (NHS), was published in six (6) volumes (regions) to facilitate reproduction and distribution. The PIHR contains general as well as site-specific information on our nation's hydroelectric power potential. It gives estimates of existing, incremental and undeveloped hydropower potential by state and region and furthermore, breaks these categories down into size ranges of small-scale (.05-15 MW) intermediate (15-25 MW) and large-scale (greater than 25MW) sites. Because the inventory is a preliminary product of the NHS, it may be superseded at some future date. Conservative assumptions havemore » been made in the screening and analysis process to avoid eliminating any potentially feasible sites. The current summary tables provide the best estimated to date, but to some degree, may overstate the actual capacity and energy which could be developed.« less
