The Office of Indian Energy hosted a two-day training for Indian tribes on how to use the System Advisor Model (SAM) June 7–8, 2016, at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. Developed by DOE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory, SAM is a free software tool that Indian tribes can use to analyze the feasibility of renewable energy projects. This training walked participants through the various technologies that can be modeled in SAM, as well as siting issues, resource characterization, and energy profiles. The training also covered financing concepts modeled in SAM and how to use them to evaluate a project.
