The development of new wind energy project requires studying of many parameters to achieve maximum benefits at the cost of minimum environmental impacts. Using Geographic Information System (GIS), an analytical framework has been developed in this paper with fuzzy logic to evaluate the suitable site for turbines for optimum energy output. The criteria for suitable site for energy optimization are environmental, physical and human factors. The present study helps to assess the appropriate sites for the wind turbines in Gujarat. The result obtained from the study conveys the suitability of the development of wind turbines along the western parts of Gujarat. The suggested model could be used for the future site selection of the wind turbine which in turn could be of orientation for energy planners and decision makers.
