The following toolkits that listed below provide guidance to those interested in Renewable Energy and want to gain an understanding of the government requirements and the development and legal frameworks.
REToolkit provides a broad set of tools to assist World Bank staff and country counterparts to improve the design and implementation of renewable energy (RE) projects, incorporate best practices and lessons learned from RE projects supported by the World Bank Group and other institutions, and is operationally oriented to address practical implementation needs at each stage in the RE project cycle. The toolkit aims to help identify and design feasible RE projects, determine appropriate promotional policies, identify sustainable business models, finance mechanisms and regulatory frameworks - and utilize the best available project tools, including technical standards and generic terms of reference.
Typically, a developer seeking RET project financing approaches a lender with a package that includes a fairly common slate of fundamental transaction documents. They may range from complex plans for a facility using a novel technology to simple (but important) term sheets for the deal or a loan.
This Toolkit aims to support planners, developers, consultants and other interested parties with planning policies which require renewable energy in new developments or major refurbishments. It gives an insight into the cost benefit analysis of installing renewables, information on successful case studies and suggestions on how problems can be overcome. This Toolkit was prepared by the Welsh Government’s Renewable Energy Support Service.
This toolkit has been produced to help community groups to develop renewable energy projects. 'Groups' may be an informal collection of like-minded individuals wishing to start something in their community; or may be well-established, constituted organisations linked to a community facility (e.g. village hall or community centre) or with a wider purpose (e.g. Development Trust).
