Jobs and Economic Development Impacts
Developed by researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the Jobs and Economic Development Impact (JEDI) models are user-friendly tools that estimate the economic impacts of constructing and operating power generation plants at the local and state levels. Using JEDI, you can analyze the energy impacts of wind, biofuels, concentrating solar power, geothermal, marine and hydrokinetic power, coal, and natural gas power plants.
The JEDI Marine Hydrokinetic Model allows users to estimate economic development impacts from marine hydrokinetic projects and includes default information that can be utilized to run a generic impact analysis assuming industry averages. Download the model and access a user reference guide .
Researchers are updating the marine and hydrokinetic power JEDI model. To ask a question, report an issue, make a suggestion, or stay up to date on the model’s development, .
