MHK Cost Breakdown Structure Draft
The generalized Cost Breakdown Structure (CBS) for marine and hydrokinetic (MHK) projects is a hierarchical structure designed to facilitate the collection and organization of lifecycle costs of any type of MHK project, including wave energy converters and current energy convertners. At a high level, the categories in the CBS will be applicable to all projects; at a detailed level, however, the CBS includes many cost categories that will pertain to one project but not others. It is expected that many of the detailed levels of the CBS will be populated with "NA" or left blank.
This version of the CBS is a working draft. The Department of Energy and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory welcome your comments and feedback. You may leave comments, here, in this forum, or you may submit comments in private via email to Scott Jenne at NREL (Dale.Jenne@nrel.gov).
