Background

Since 1989, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has been developing descriptions of the renewable power technologies for internal program planning and support purposes. Similarly, EPRI has maintained an ongoing perspective on these technologies, and has addressed status and projections for a number of them in its Technical Assessment Guide, TAG™. In late 1996, EPRI and DOE's Office of Utility Technologies embarked on an effort to develop a consensus document on the status, developmental needs, and outlook for these technologies. This effort has been carried out through most of 1997, culminating in this jointly prepared document.
