National Renewable Energy Laboratory – Energy Market and Economic Analysis
NREL's marine energy and hydropower researchers provide water power stakeholders with a variety of tools to quantify the economic impact of technology innovations and economic feasibility studies. These analyses have been used to focus technology development pathways and highlight near-term economic opportunities for water power technology developers.
The techno-economic modeling and analysis staff is integrated with hydrodynamic modeling, grid integration, resource characterization, and hardware validation/characterization staff, as well as other renewable technology researchers, to ensure that the most appropriate models and simulation techniques are leveraged for analyses.
