Dear IMPLAN, Hello. I and a number of other users seems to be looking for guidance in how you created the Wind Power spending patterns in your case study of [url=http://implan.com/V4/index.php?option=com_multicategories&view=article&id=730:case-study-analysis-by-parts&Itemid=71]analysis by parts[/url] Table c-1, from the spreadsheets generated by the NREL/JEDI models (see http://www.nrel.gov/analysis/jedi/download.html). I am trying to do the same for biomass plants. However your instructions to a previous user were a bit vague. You replied to user Michelle to: "1. Export IMPLAN’s sector 31 production function into Excel and group commodities into categories similar to NREL’s categories. 2. Sum the coefficients in each of those categories to get a category total. 3. Divide each individual coefficient by its category’s sum. Multiply these proportions by the NREL expenditure for that category to split out the NREL expenditure into specific IMPLAN sectors." However, I'm still unclear how you came up with the Dollar figures in table C1. Did you just base this on the raw project data in the default settings? Or did you do a run with a specific state/project size? Perhaps you could attach the excel file that you used to categories the commodities for the Wind Plant and we can reverse engineer the method for biomass. Thanks very much. Sincerely, Bill Lester
