|Abstract=The Renewable Energy Toolkit (REToolkit) provides a set of tools to assist in improving the design and implementation of on-grid, mini-grid, and off-grid renewable energy projects. It offers best practices 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. Links to a number of case studies are provided.

Logo: Renewable Energy Project Resource Center (REPRC)
The Renewable Energy Project Resource Center (REPRC) is a wiki-based platform for collaborative knowledge exchange on renewable energy in developing countries. The REPRC offers project-relevant working documents to the global energy community, with the objective of guiding project planning and implementation.

Examples of document included in the REPRC are:

  • sample terms of reference (TOR)
  • sample legal documents
  • sample surveys and questionnaires
  • examples of economic and financial analysis
  • project case studies

Having such documents readily available can reduce transaction costs such as those associated with having to create new TOR or contract templates from scratch. The Project Resource Center brings these documents together under a simple interface that will significantly improve the quality, ease, and access to information for the global renewable energy development community. The Project Resource Center is hosted on Energypedia’s open wiki-based platform, allowing anyone to easily locate documents through browse and search functions, and to add new ones, thus contributing to a shared body of knowledge. The platform also allows for facilitated interactions through dedicated spaces for discussion and private messages to other users.

Documents included in the Project Resource Center are tagged to specific technologies (e.g. hydroelectricity, wind, geothermal, storage, etc.), connection types (e.g. grid connected, off-grid, small island systems, etc.), language, and region/country. As the document library grows, additional categories can be added to better capture the global knowledge available.

The current document archive builds on the World Bank’s RE Toolkit, developed in 2006 to provide World Bank staff and partners access to a broad set of resources on renewable energy such as issue notes, case studies and TORs. Going forward, information will be updated and added, building on the growing experience of the World Bank Group as well as other development agencies as they support renewable energy projects in developing countries. Current partners include the Public-Private Partnership Infrastructure Resource Center (PPPIRC), GIZ, the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP), and Open EI.org.
