Layer: Long-Term Potential For Energy Development (HUC5) (Scale Dependent) (ID: 26)

Parent Layer: Input Datasets

Name: Long-Term Potential For Energy Development (HUC5) (Scale Dependent)

Display Field: HUC_10

Type: Feature Layer

Geometry Type: esriGeometryPolygon

Description: See metadata (FGDC section) for complete information about this layer - This dataset shows potential for long-term energy development, which was evaluated using a fuzzy logic model. This model integrates factors describing potential for petroleum development, solar development, and wind development. Petroleum development was derived from the combination of BLM Oil / Gas leases (from CO, UT, and NM; none were available for AZ for this area), BLM Oil Shale / Tar Sands PEIS Alternative B areas, Department of Energy Oil / Gas fields, and areas of high potential for oil / gas development developed by Copeland et al. (2009). Wind development was extracted from NREL estimates where potential wind class was 3 and above, combined with BLM wind priority areas. Solar development was extracted from NREL estimates where slopes were less than 1%. Highly protected areas (e.g., wilderness) were erased from each of the above factors. These factors were combined using a fuzzy model to show the maximum across the three factors (fuzzy OR operation). Caution is warranted when interpreting this dataset. Factors describing future potential for development are widely variable, and do not necessarily indicate those areas that have the highest potential for development - only those areas where the potential for development according to one of the factors in this model occupies proportionally more of a given reporting unit. Areas may be divided into higher likelihood of development by investigating additional factors such as local resource management plans (e.g., on BLM land), current and near-term leasing activity, and other planning processes. These sources of information were generally not available at the ecoregion scale.
