Distributed Wind Site Analysis Tool

Distributed Wind Site Analysis Tool

Date: 1/16/2012

Distributed wind systems are typically installed near the point of electricity use at residences, businesses, and community institutions such as schools and hospitals to help save energy, reduce energy bills, and cut carbon emissions. The Distributed Wind Site Analysis Tool, developed by the Cadmus Group, Inc., allows users to input location and terrain information about a potential wind system site in the United States and predict the energy output and environmental benefits of that site. The tool is designed to help potential wind energy system consumers choose the most effective site for their wind energy project. The standard version of the tool was developed in partnership with the U.S Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Encraft. The standard version is free, and a version with more advanced features is available for an annual subscription fee. The DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy funded development of the tool through American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grants.
