CWL explore GIS and site selection with final year students at Chester University – 8th February
CWL are delighted to have continued our relationship with Chester University in providing a presentation focusing on renewable energy site selection and how GIS acts a valuable tool in assisting this.
Students taking the GE6009 Remote Sensing and GIS module as part of their geography degree were shown how staff at Community Windpower use GIS on a daily basis as part of the wind farm development process. The presentation sought to prepare the class for their individual projects which involves a site selection process to locate a potential solar farm.
We had a great morning discussing the topic, which saw the students undertaking a task of their own to appraise the constraints and considerations involved in a site selection activity. We hope that they can take away plenty of ideas to consider for their own projects, and CWL wish them all the best in their future studies.
