Key Tools and Resources

The project team, with the help of the participating co-ops, are developing several tools and resources to help cooperatives learn more about distributed wind from the RADWIND project. The following are those available or planned at this stage. Contact our team at RadwindProject@nreca.coop for more informatoin on this project.

Available Resources

    • Distributed Wind Beneficial Use Case Document
      A document covering various distributed wind beneficial use cases for three major use case scenarios: small wind (<100kw), behind the meter (>100kw), or utility or community owned solutions (>100kw).
    • Distributed Wind Value Case Document
      A document that defines the values of the examples described in the beneficial use case documents to a cooperative or utility compared to other potential market-based solutions (e.g. peak shaving, grid and resiliency support, local economic development).

    • RADWIND Case Studies
      Case studies on distributed wind projects deployed by electric cooperatives or other utilities.

    • Case Studies of Financing Methods
      Case studies focusing on project financing across the full range of distributed wind project sizes deployed by electric cooperatives or other utilities.

      What is Distributed Wind?

      Distributed wind is generally defined in terms of technology application, based on a project’s location on the distribution network, rather than technology or project size. Wind system attributes for typical distributed wind applications include:
       
      ◾Behind-the-meter: Windturbines that are installed behind the member’s revenue meter for thepurposes of meeting onsite energy demands that may also support theoperation of the existing distribution grid.


      ◾In-front-of-the-meter: Windturbines that are connected directly to the distribution grid and meet theneeds of members within the distribution network or within the generationand transmission coop family.
