Webinar – Using RETScreen To Identify the Most Promising Clean Energy Projects

October 27, 2010

Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Technical Assistance Program (TAP) for state and local officials, this Webinar discussed RETScreen, which is a leading online software tool that can help state and local officials quickly conduct feasibility analyses for clean energy projects. This software is relatively easy to use and is free of charge. It can therefore significantly reduce the expense associated with identifying and assessing potential energy projects.

The costs of conducting pre-feasibility and feasibility studies are significant for many state and local government officials and, as a result, can represent a substantial barrier to the deployment of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies. Lowering these cost barriers allows RETScreen users to better compete in the clean technology marketplace.
