GIS is used to assist with the siting of new generation facilities, help determine the optimum route for new transmission and distribution lines, to determine demographic changes as part of long-range planning, and to develop emergency evacuation plans around nuclear-generating facilities, just to name a few. The problem-solving potential for the use of GIS in the energy sector is unlimited.

GIS have a significant role in supporting the development and expansion of the renewable energy sector involving biomass, geothermal, solar, wind and hydro/wave types. With this course professionals gain skills that will aid proper management of the energy resources.
