Wind power Solar power Biomass power Geothermal power Technology assessment Energy storage

An increasing national interest in the use of renewable energy for electricity generation has stimulated a need for carefully prepared data on present and projected costs and performance of current and emerging renewable technology options. This document was prepared jointly by the U.S. Department of Energy and EPRI to address this need. It represents a consensus perspective on 12 different configurations of biomass, geothermal, photovoltaic, solar thermal, and wind technologies. It also provides data on battery storage systems for use in conjunction with renewable energy systems. In addition, various approaches to analyzing project financial attractiveness are presented. This document is designed for use by electric-utility and power-project planners, energy policy analysts, and technology R&D planners.

This first edition of the Renewable Energy Technology Characterizations was prepared through a joint effort of the Electric Power Research Institute and the Office of Utility Technologies within the U.S. Department of Energy. Overall project management was provided by Joe Galdo (DOE/OUT), with support from DOE program managers including Lynne Gillette (Biomass), Ray Fortuna, (Geothermal), Jeff Mazer (Photovoltaics), Tom Rueckert (Solar Thermal), Jack Cadogan (Wind) and Christine Platt (Storage). Contributions were made by the following authors:
