IRENA Renewable Energy Learning Partnership (IRELP)

REEEP has been supporting IRENA in the development of the IRENA Renewable Energy Learning Partnership (IRELP) portal. This new online platform is designed to provide information, training and education to students, vocational trainees and other professionals looking to develop and update their renewable energy knowledge; education and training providers; and government entities and decision makers.

This tool on training and education in renewable energy can be accessed directly via the following link:

Apart from REEEP, many other initiatives and institutions in the field of renewable energy have also been involved in IRELP’s development, including the Economic and Technological Development Distance Learning Centre Foundation (CEDDET), Research Center for Energy, Environment and Technology (Ciemat), National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the Sustainable Energy Initiative (SEI) at York University, Canada.


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 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. 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.

Both services were undertaken by Natural Resources Canada and CanmetENERGY’s RETScreen International, and supported financially by the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP).
