RETScreen is free-of-charge decision support software made available by the Government of Canada to help evaluate the viability and performance of renewable energy and energy efficiency projects. The software currently has over 368,000 users across the globe.
REEEP has previously supported the development of RETScreen Version 4 (energy efficiency and multilingual capability), RETScreen’s Performance Analysis module and Benchmark Analysis Tool, as well as the creation of the RETScreen Clean Energy Legal & Policy Toolkits.
The new RETScreen Expert represents the next generation of RETScreen, expanding the software from a decision-making model for specialist engineers to an intelligent decision support tool for a much broader range of stakeholders over the entire project life cycle.
RETScreen Expert will leverage a global database of project input parameters, a knowledge base of best practices, and make use of Linked Open Data to create an intelligent decision engine.
