Toolkits and outcomes

A wide range of project output documents are available on our Toolkits website, catalogued and searchable by geographic area and topic. These range from policy papers and case studies to presentations that are produced by REEEP-funded projects around the world.  New information is added regularly.

Some of the items available on the Toolkits website include:

REEEP-funded RETScreen Toolkits

The high cost of developing comprehensive and customized legal and financial documentation can be a critical barrier to the implementation of energy efficiency, renewable energy and cogeneration projects. In support of RETScreen’s goal of reducing the transaction costs associated with implementing clean energy projects, the RETScreen Clean Energy Legal Toolkit has been developed.
RETScreen Clean Energy Legal Toolkit

RETScreen is well-known around the world as a tool to analyze the viability of clean energy projects. However, it is also useful for planning, designing, implementing, and reviewing the viability of clean energy policies. The RETScreen Clean Energy Policy Toolkit 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.

Energy regulation resources

REEEP/UNIDO training package for sustainable energy regulation and policy-making in Africa

Policy & Regulatory Approaches for Promoting RE Power

A TERI-produced publication aimed at developing country regulators on how to promote renewable energy.

Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs): Prevailing practices

Compendium of U.S. Best Practices

The Compendium of Best Practices gives concrete examples of how US states and cities are successfully promoting energy efficiency and renewable energy.  It is the culmination of a process of extensive outreach, data gathering, and analysis conducted to identify the best practices, and making them accessible with easy-to-understand descriptions.
