REEEP (Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership) 4 October 2012.
RETScreen is well-known around the world as a tool to analyze the viability of clean energyprojects. However, it is also useful for planning, designing, implementing, and reviewing the viability of clean energy policies. RETScreen allows participants in the policy process to consider the technology, business, and finance of clean energy in an integrated fashion, thus helping to develop appropriate – and ultimately, successful – policies.
To demonstrate RETScreen’s value in the policy process, the RETScreen Clean Energy Policy Toolkit has been developed and is provided below. This initiative was undertaken by NRCan/CanmetENERGY’s RETScreen International and supported financially by a grant from the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP).
