Distributed Wind Soft Costs: A Beginning: NREL (National Renewable Energy Laboratory)

Antonio Jimenez, Robert Preus, Corrie Christol, Trudy Forsyth, Alice Orrell, Suzanne Tegen

Research output: NRELPresentation


Tony Jimenez presented this overview of distributed wind soft costs at the 2016 Small Wind Conference in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, on June 14, 2016. Soft costs are any non-hardware project costs, such as costs related to permitting fees, installer/developer profit, taxes, transaction costs, permitting, installation, indirect corporate costs, installation labor, and supply chain costs. This presentation provides an overview of soft costs, a distributed wind project taxonomy (of which soft costs are a subset), an alpha data set project demographics, data summary, and future work in this area.
