Ventyx 2009 U.S. Power System Wall Map Captures Huge Growth in Renewable Power Investment

Nearly 900 New or Expanding Plants and More Than 125 Gigawatts of Existing or Proposed Renewable Capacity Displayed

Ventyx®, the world's largest private software provider to the energy and utility industry, today announced the release of the new 2009 U.S. Power System Map. Utilizing complex data from the energy industry's most trusted source for market intelligence, Ventyx Velocity Suite, this new edition is the most detailed and up-to-date reference map available to energy professionals.

"The power industry has been gearing up for a wave of huge investment in new electricity infrastructure, driven by states striving to meet their Renewable Portfolio Standards and by the entire industry trying to understand the need for new baseload generation and new transmission projects. The current credit crisis has raised a lot of questions about how this demand for investment will be met," said Ventyx Executive VP Will Dailey. "The new release of this map perfectly captures the geographic areas that will be most affected by this tension."

The 2009 map includes major additions representing two years of Ventyx research into the infrastructure of the U.S. electrical power system. And, it captures the existing capacity, as well as a very detailed look at the development ahead. According to Dailey, "With so many different potential fuel sources competing to be in the mix, we have altered the map for this release to show 11 different power categories including wind, solar, biomass, geothermal, and—for the first time—tidal power. This detail makes our U.S. Power System Map uniquely valuable to our customers."

Rendered for Ventyx by Bolder Geographics, the map includes aerial imagery and land relief details that enable viewers to better comprehend the complex geography of the U.S. energy industry. As a result, the 2009 U.S. Power System Map is also the most comprehensive cartographic resource available today. Click here for more information or to purchase or preview the map.
