Citing SAM

The System Advisor Model (SAM) is free software, and you are welcome to use it for your academic research and for commercial uses.

In documentation of your research or analysis based on SAM results, we ask that you acknowledge your use of the System Advisor Model and mention the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), which develops the software, and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), which funds NREL's work.

Here are some suggestions for citing SAM in your articles and other publications. Refer to your publication guidelines for correct formating. These examples are for SAM 2016.3.14 -- you should use the version number appropriate for your work.
