Department of Energy Resource Assessment Program 5-year plan, FY 1991--FY 1995

Authors: Not Available
 
Abstract: The US Department of Energy`s (DOE) Resource Assessment Program produces scientific descriptions and assessments of the nation`s renewable energy resources, such as solar energy.^Information about the resources --- for example, how solar energy varies with location and climate --- is required to develop energy conversion technologies, design and site systems, and forecast the systems` performance.^With information about resource availability and renewable energy system performance, DOE can assess the potential for renewable energy to contribute to the nation`s energy supply as part of the long-term national energy strategy.^This 5-year plan for fiscal years (FY) 1991 through 1995 gives the strategy to produce solar radiation resource characterizations and assessments under the DOE project at SERI.^It is consistent with the mini-multiyear plan for resource assessment prepared by DOE in 1989 and incorporates the comments received at a project overview held in April 1990 at DOE Headquarters.^7 figs.
