Jobs and Economic Development Impact (JEDI) Models

Resource: Jobs and Economic Development Impact (JEDI) Models

The Jobs and Economic Development Impact (JEDI) models are user-friendly tools that estimate the economic impacts of constructing and operating power generation and biofuel plants at the local and state levels. First developed by NREL’s Wind Powering America program to model wind energy impacts, JEDI has been expanded to analyze biofuels, coal, concentrating solar power, geothermal, marine and hydrokinetic power, natural gas, and photovoltaic power plants. On this site, you can download the models for free, learn more about how JEDI works, understand the output, and get answers to questions about using the model.
