The Distributed Wind Site Analysis Tool (DSAT) is a tool for conducting detailed site assessments for single turbine projects, from residential to community scale. DSAT was created by a partnership between The Cadmus Group, Inc., BRE, Loughborough, Encraft, and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). The development of DSAT was funded through a grant from the United States Department of Energy (DOE), award number DE-EE0000498 under the Wind Powering America program.

DSAT was created to address the needs of the distributed wind energy community through:

  • Accurate prediction of project energy yield
  • Standardized reporting of system characteristics, benefits, and impacts
  • Education of distributed wind consumers and industry newcomers regarding system siting and wind resource prediction


The project team would like to acknowledge the following individuals for their feedback and assistance in developing and testing DSAT:
  • Mick Sagrillo
