Analyze and Mark Exclusions

Users can choose to analyze various key datasets (e.g. slope, wetlands, flood, etc.) and specify what parameters are required in order to get customized constraint maps.

Add Custom Setbacks

Add a custom setback around each hazard type (and internally from the property boundary) to maintain a buffer area around the hazard area itself

Export Buildable Area

Automatically remove ‘slivers’ of buildable land or other areas that are technically hazard-free but too small to put an array on.

Estimate buildable area quickly and simply

The Buildable Area Analysis tool allows users to quickly analyze key environmental and infrastructure layers to identify hazards on the site, create constraint maps, and automatically calculates buildable area/parcel.

  • Apply an internal setback from the parcel boundary line to ensure that you’re not building right up to the edge of a property
  • Apply a internal setback from any key environmental and infrastructure layers to ensure sufficient proximity
  • Manually mark hazards and exclusion areas and update the buildable area calculations to remove those areas

Save Buildable Area Analysis configuration as a template

Save time when running the buildable area anlaysis by saving common settings as a template. The template enables users to save a global, country-specific or region-specific configuration file to use across the organization.

  • Automatically evaluate environmental hazards or constraints by running an automatic analysis based on a template
  • Automatically remove ‘slivers’ of buildable land or other areas that are technically hazard-free but too small
  • Save configuration files as template for specific countries or regions to ease future analysis

Seamless export for downstream work

Export data from a portfolio for seamless downstream work, including: map data (parcels, constraint maps, grid infrastructure), reports, and images/screenshots.

  • Export data from Enernite Platform as a KML/ KMZ map file for work in Google Earth and other GIS programs
  • Easily share site analysis details internally or externally through the Enernite Report PDF export
  • Export parcels, grid infrastructure, constraint maps as a Shapefile for use in ArcGIS, QGIS, etc.
  • Export data from an asset list on a project as an Excel/CSV spreadsheet to make it easy to upload data into CRM systems

How it works

1. Create portfolio
2. Analyze constraints
3. Evaluate buildability
4. Output and design
5. Export results

Set up an initial portfolio with sites

Create a new siting project to save all your siting work in one place and easily collaborate on a site across other users within your team. Add primary assets to project setup by importing assets (substations, line routes, parcels, or site boundaries) from a GoogleEarth KML or KMZ.

This will bring up a short import wizard to finish help you finish importing the data. Select a configuration file with a set of rules to automatically detect issues concerning a site.

Integrate data from any GIS format

Enernite comes with more than 100 European layers (and country-specific layers as well). You can overlay these over any map in the system. However, we can integrate data from most GIS formats or other geolocated resources. Some common data types include:

KMLs / KMZs

KML (Keyhole Markup Language) is the data format used by Google Earth Pro and Google Maps.

Shapefiles / GDBs

Shapefile (.shp) and File Geodatabase (.gdb) are storage formats for spatial data developed by Esri.

Learn more

Excel / CSVs

Excel sheets and CSVs (provided they have lat/long) are stored tabular data of numbers and text.

Other public webmaps

External sources like public webmaps and mapservers/ feature servers via WMS, WFS or WCS.
