About JEDI Natural Gas Model

The Jobs and Economic Development Impacts (JEDI) Natural Gas model allows users to estimate economic development impacts from natural gas power generation projects. The basic user interface for the natural gas model is the same as the wind and coal models. Results are provided in the same format as the coal and wind models allowing for straightforward comparison with other generation types. JEDI Natural Gas relies on a similar set of standard user inputs that are common to the wind and coal models. Supplemental inputs specific to JEDI Natural Gas include:

  • Capacity Factor
  • Heat Rate
  • Fuel Costs
  • Fuel Produced Locally (Percent)*

As with all JEDI models, reasonable default values are provided. Individual projects may vary and when possible project specific data should be used to obtain the best estimate of economic development impacts.

This model has been reviewed by the U.S. Department of Energy's National Energy Technology Laboratory.
