DOE Distributed Wind Soft Costs Discussion

September 30, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Hyatt Regency Sacramento, 1209 L Street
Sacramento, 95814
+ Google Map

The U.S. Department of Energy has identified high non-hardware balance-of-system (“soft”) costs as a barrier to distributed wind system deployment. To better understand the soft cost reduction potential for distributed wind systems, DOE’s national labs, NREL and PNNL, will work with industry to categorize soft costs and create a soft costs data set. Please join DOE, NREL, and PNNL as they kick off efforts to categorize and benchmark soft costs associated with distributed wind systems. This will be an interactive…
