The International Jobs and Economic Development Impacts (I-JEDI) model is a free tool for analyzing the economic impacts of renewable energy development around the world.
The I-JEDI model was developed by NREL with support from the U.S. Agency for International Development.
To access the online tool, see the I-JEDI website.
I-JEDI is also available as a spreadsheet model. Model users are encouraged to enter as much project-specific data as possible.
Using MS Excel 2007
When opening the spreadsheet, you may be prompted with a security warning asking if you would like to "Enable Macros." Please select "Enable Macros" or "Enable Content" for the spreadsheet to run properly.
Please make sure that the security setting on your computer is not set to "High." Set the level to "Medium" or "Low" and then re-open the JEDI worksheet. You can reset to a higher level when you have finished using the JEDI model.
