Maryland smart siting: using GIS in siting electric power plants

Publication Type

Conference Proceedings


The Maryland Power Plant Research Program (PPRP) initiated the PPRP Smart Siting Project to identify regions of the state more favorable for power plant development. As a first step, the data layers were developed. Following this, 'power plant engineering requirements', were evaluated. Finally, several possible scenarios of power plant types that could be proposed in Maryland were developed.
