List of websites for energy and power calculation or information
This website from The Danish Wind Industry Association (DWIA) contains a lot of information about
See particularly their "Windpower Wiki" that is "made for people who want to know a lot about wind energy, but does not hold an engineering degree.". Very instructive!
Check out Windpower.org website.
Website that lists all types of photovoltaic softwares for photovoltaic energy calculation : free, professional or not, on-line or not.
Check out Photovoltaic-software.com website.
This website presents all technical aspects of solar photovoltaic energy. Probably the more complete and more pedagogic website about this technology.Check out PVeducation website.
PV performance modelling collaborative - SANDIA project
Sandia National Laboratories is facilitating a collaborative group of photovoltaic (PV) professionals (PV Performance Modeling Collaborative or PVPMC). This group is interested in improving the accuracy and technical rigor of PV performance models and analyses, Their goal is to assemble and organize the most complete, transparent, and accurate set of information about PV system performance modeling. Check out Sandia PVPMC website.
EUBIA,is the European Biomass Industry Association, active in the field of biomass. EUBIA's main objective
is to support the European biomass industries at all levels, promoting the use of biomass as an energy source,
developing innovative bioenergy concepts and fostering international co-operation within the bioenergy field.

IEA Biomass Task 32 : Biomass Combustion and Co-firing
Within the IEA Bioenergy agreement, Task 32: Biomass Combustion and Co-firing works on further expansion
of the use of biomass combustion for heat and power generation, with special emphasis on small and medium
scale CHP plants and co-firing biomass with coal in traditional coal-fired boilers. This is done by
generating and disseminating information on technical and on non-technical barriers and anticipated solutions.
