Energy Department Distributed Wind Discussion: Non-Hardware Cost Reduction

Date: 9/29/2015

Location: Sacramento, CA

This information was last updated on August 24, 2015

The Energy Department (DOE) 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, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, will work with industry to categorize soft costs and create a soft costs data set. Please join DOE, NREL, and PNNL for an interactive session with industry and stakeholder feedback on specific categories for the soft costs as well as opportunities for reducing these costs.

SMART Wind Manufacturing Forum

The SMART Wind Consortium will host a Manufacturing Forum focused on automation, robotics, and lean manufacturing processes to help in efforts to develop a consensus-based Distributed Wind Technology Roadmap that identifies common distributed wind manufacturing gaps and barriers, prioritizes solutions to those gaps for today and for future scalability, and facilitates a rapid transfer of innovation into American-manufactured wind turbines. The Roadmap will lead the way to new market opportunities and more distributed wind applications, thereby maintaining U.S. global competitiveness and leadership. Off-site participation is available.

Building a project on tribal or Indian country lands is not a traditional development process, and it can present legal and cultural complexities that require special consideration and due diligence. Moreover, construction for a number of projects across the southwestern United States has recently faced serious delays or has been halted completely because of these complexities. This conference will engage attendees in discussions with multiple governmental and tribal organizations, as well as tribal and Indian country project developers, to try to understand and learn from these unique challenges.
