Renewable Energy Maps

RenSMART was set up to promote actions to mitigate accelerated climate change due to human factors. RenSMART will help visitors to its web site by finding, analysing and supporting these activities and supplying traceable information to help decision makers implement these actions.

All information supplied by RenSMART will be provided with links or references allowing the information to be traced back to its original source. Wherever possible, this source will be as close to the primary source as possible. Often, where this information is on web sites that are prone to changes, the source documents will be stored by RenSMART in our document library.

RenSMART is funded by charging a small service fee for the use of some of its tools that make this information more convenient for those making a profit from installing, supplying or consulting while making use of our information.

RenSMART is also actively developing technology that supports our areas of interest which will then be made available for resale or production by third parties.

RenSMART has developed a renewable energy estimation model. The model references several publicly available and (highly regarded) renewable energy databases that give estimated renewable energy resources for locations covering the whole of the UK.

We combine this information with information on the energy you use, how you use it througout the day and year, and the type of renewable energy technology you are considering.

Our model has been developed in such a way that the accuracy of the estimate can be improved by including personalised information about your location but can also be used with average information taken from leading energy use profiles.

RenSMART Limited was founded in 2008. RenSMART is a trading name of Ltd., a UK registered limited company.
