Description: The RETScreen International Renewable Energy Decision Support Centre seeks to
promote the deployment of renewable energy systems by building the capacity of
planners, decision-makers and industry to implement more projects successfully.
The broad aim of the Centre's partners is to foster increased market uptake of
renewable energy technologies (RETs) that reduce the reliance on conventional
energy sources and which help to protect the global environment. The Centre
builds upon the success of the RETScreen International Renewable Energy Project
Analysis Software, which is now being used by more than 21,000 people in 185
countries around the globe and which is growing at 150 new users every week.

The Centre develops enabling tools that allow stakeholders to better analyse
the technical and financial viability of possible projects. These tools make it
easier for people to consider renewable energy projects at the critically
important initial planning stage while significantly reducing the costs of
assessing potential projects. Some of the enabling tools include renewable
energy project analysis software models and manuals; international product and
weather databases; project case studies; and university textbooks. Given the
broad aim of the Centre's partners, the Centre provides these valuable enabling
tools free-of-charge to users around the globe via the Internet and CD-ROM.

The Centre also transfers the knowledge created on a sponsorship or
non-commercial cost-recovery basis via the delivery of distance learning
courses, professional-training seminars and training-of-trainers workshops; and
via an international network of certified RETScreen trainers.
