JEDI Analysis in the Great Lakes Webinar

Event type: 

Times are EDT - The Great Lakes Wind Collaborative (GLWC) Economic Development Workgroup invites you to join Suzanne Tegen, Senior Energy Analyst at the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL), and David G. Loomis, Associate Professor of Economics at Illinois State University and Chair of the GLWC Economic Development Workgroup, for a 75 minute webinar to learn how to use the Jobs and Economic Development Impacts (JEDI) model and hear how a JEDI analysis can demonstrate the economic benefits of wind energy in your state, region or community.

JEDI is a model that analyzes the economic impacts of constructing and operating wind projects. The JEDI model runs in Excel, and users can use either default settings or their own settings in the analysis. The model has application for anyone who wants to better understand how a wind project will affect a community through job creation and local revenue.

The JEDI Model is often used by developers, advocates, government officials, decision makers, and other users who might not have the resources to develop their own economic development models. It is designed to accommodate a broad user base with various levels of experience in economic development modeling.

The Webinar is free of charge and open to your colleagues and associates.
