This course explains how and where distributed wind systems could be installed at federal sites. The training includes an overview of what distributed wind is and covers the wind-specific issues that need to be addressed to proceed through the Federal Energy Management Program's recommended project development and implementation process (i.e., what is needed to go from an initial screening to assessing procurement options). These issues include wind resource assessment, common wind myths, applicable policies and incentives, applicable regulations, land availability, mission compatibility, project costs, project sizing and siting, turbine technology, and other logistical, technical, and economic considerations.
