  • No constraints, all opportunities

Introduction

The use of fossil fuels to produce energy is a resource intensive process that generates a great deal of waste and pollution. Utilizing renewable sources of energy is instead more sustainable. In particular, solar energy is one of many types of renewable energy that is underutilized. Use of such energy can reduce air pollution, increase public health, reduce dependence on fossil fuels and mitigate climate change.

Step 1: Define the Problem

Find the best location for a solar farm in San Francisco, CA

Bad Good

Step 2: Define the Opportunities

Available Land

High Pop. Dens.

Southern Aspect

Solar Radiation

  • Conclusion
  • Best place to put a solar tree is in the Financial District
  • The solar trees will make the area more atheistically pleasing
  • It will serve an economic benefit for the businesses and the City of San Francisco in reduced energy costs to keep areas well light
  • Extra energy generated can be used by companies to power their office buildings

Step 3: Define the Constraints

Liquefaction and Streets

Canopy Cover

Aim

The main aim of this project is to find the optimum location for solar trees in the city of San Francisco. As a densely populated urban area, space and resources are limited. For this reason, a suitability analysis was performed to determine the best location for the solar trees. Solar trees combine form and function as they generate renewable energy. They use space efficiently, and the energy produced from solar trees can be used to light streets. Installation of solar trees will help San Francisco reduce its carbon footprint and pollution generated by the use of fossil fuels. It will help other regions in California as well as polluted air from the bay area is transported to other regions-like the central valley- that end up bearing a disproportionate amount of the environmental burden.
