This project starts from the results former projects: SUN-AREA, WIND-AREA & ERNEURBAR KOMM! These were done majorly in Frankfurt, Hesse.
With the "European Green Deal" and its centerpiece, the EU Climate Change Act, Europe is pursuing the long-term goal of becoming the first climate-neutral continent. Identifying the best, most profitable locations for wind power and solar plants is a necessary prerequisite for thisProject GoalsMap
The INSPIRE directive, which is regulating the foundation for a uniform provision and utilization of geodata throughout the EU since 2021, has created an ideal framework. Existing algorithms from the completed research projects SUN-AREA, WIND-AREA and ERNEUERBAR KOMM! will be merged with the EU-wide standardized geodata.
We intend to develop and deliver an algorithm that allows EU-wide operators from industry, science and administration, software developers, large municipalities and local authorities, planning and engineering offices as well as project developers to perform automated potential analyses to identify the most profitable areas for wind power and solar plants.
The European Union (EU) has declared its goal of becoming the world's first climate-neutral continent by 2050 through the European Green Deal. The caREL research group is looking for ways to use their expertise to support the achievement of the climate protection goals and the european climate neutrality.

This is a fine example of how the open data strategies of the EU, the federal government and the state of Hesse can pave the way for sensible and necessary projects and what great potential can result from the provision of publicly accessible data free of charge. Therefore, we expressly support open source projects that serve the transfer of knowledge.
Many countries now offer high-quality LiDAR data as open data via their national geoportals. The caREL algorithm is able to generate high-quality, meaningful results from these data.
The operational area was extended from Germany to Europe. And 5 european countries were selected for the example calculations: Estonia, Belgium, Denmark, Slovenia and Spain Due to the different location in Europe, the selected countries should cover different geographical conditions.
