Presenting ProForm: A Tool for Assessment of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Projects

Speaker(s): 
Date: 
April 25, 2002 - 12:00pm
Location: 
Bldg. 90

ProForm is a software tool designed to support a basic assessment of the environmental and financial impacts of renewable energy and energy efficiency projects. Given the necessary data, ProForm calculates basic financial indicators and avoided emissions of CO2 and local air pollutants expected from a project.As a spreadsheet-based tool, ProForm is designed to be simple enough to be easily usable, yet sophisticated enough to provide credible results. A typical application of ProForm would be in preparation of a project proposal that the developers might submit to potential investors, financiers, or a national climate change office. ProForm allows project developers, financial institutions, and other parties to investigate how changes in basic assumptions affect the key parameters of a project.
