Title Jobs and Economic Development Impact (JEDI Model) Geothermal User Reference Guide.
Publication Date Sep 2012
Media Count 33p
Personal Author C. Augustine C. Johnson M. Goldberg
Abstract The Jobs and Economic Development Impact (JEDI) models, developed through the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), are user-friendly tools used to estimate the local economic impacts of constructing and operating power generation projects. JEDI models cover a range of conventional and renewable energy technologies, including geothermal. The JEDI Model Geothermal User Reference Guide provides basic instructions on model operation and add-in features, discusses how to interpret results, and explains the models underlying methodology as well as the parameters and references used to develop JEDI's cost data. Based on project-specific inputs from the user, the model estimates job creation, earning, and output (total economic activity) for a given power generation project. This includes the direct, indirect, and induced economic impacts to the local economy associated with the construction and operation phases.
