This Best Practices document (“Guidelines”) highlights those practices that have demonstrated the greatest success and provides recommendations on the courses of action that are meant to be practical but also, by necessity, need to be general, in the implementation of wind-diesel projects.
The Guidelines is a living document; it needs to be updated when significant developments in the technology or the market conditions and commercial activities occur. The present report is the first version. It is expected that the Guidelines will be available online for public download, as well as in print. Moreover, the various sections dealing with best practices in implementing wind-diesel systems (siting, permitting, environmental assessment, feasibility, and financing) will be maintained as a Wiki, managed by ACEP and WiDAC, and will be publicly available as a link from http://www.akwidac.com, to facilitate discussion and improvement of the Guidelines.
