ProForm is a software tool designed to support a basic assessment of the environmental and financial impacts of renewable energy and energy efficiency projects. ProForm can assess renewable energy projects that generate electricity and/or produce non-electric energy, as well as fuel switching projects, methane gas capture projects, cogeneration projects, and energy efficiency projects that save electricity and/or fuels.
These projects may involve a single installation of technology (such as a power plant) or they may include many units of equipment over one year or several. ProForm calculates basic financial indicators, avoided emissions of CO2 and local air pollutants expected from a project.
