BioEnergy Atlas


Built into Google Maps, BioEnergy Atlas includes two interactive maps, BioPower and BioFuels. These maps allow you to compare and analyze biomass feedstocks, biopower and biofuels data from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

BioFuelsLaunch

BioFuels Atlas is an interactive map for comparing biomass feedstocks and biofuels by location. This tool helps users select from and apply biomass data layers to a map as well as query and download biofuels and feedstock data. The state zoom function summarizes state energy use and infrastructure for traditional and bioenergy power, fuels, and resources. The tool also calculates the biofuels potential for a given area.

BioFuels Atlas was developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory with funding from the DOE Biomass Program.

BioPowerLaunch

BioPower is an interactive map for comparing biomass feedstocks and biopower by location. This tool helps users select from and apply biomass data layers to a map as well as query and download biopower and feedstock data. The analysis function offers common conversion factors that allow users to determine the potential biopower production for a selected feedstock in a specific area.

BioPower was developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory with funding from the EPA Blue Skyways Collaborative.

About ORNL's Knowledge Discovery Framework and NREL's BioEnergy Atlas

Oak Ridge National Laboratory's (ORNL) Knowledge Discovery Framework (KDF) is an online collaboration toolkit for information sharing. It serves as a central repository for biomass energy information. KDF provides comprehensive datasets, publications, analysis and query capabilities, models, mapping functionality, and collaboration between users. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory's (NREL) BioEnergy Atlas, is one of many tools and datasets available through KDF. The BioEnergy Atlas includes the BioPower and BioFuels Atlas, the two interactive mapping tools described above.
