The Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership has teamed up with the governments of Norway and the United Kingdom to provide CanmetENERGY, the Canadian clean energy research and technology lab, with a fifth funding round for the RETScreen Clean Energy Project Analysis Software. The grant will go toward a new version of the software, RETScreen Expert, which will improve and expand inputs and analysis, allowing users to identify, assess, optimize and track clean energy investments over the complete project life cycle.

The improved RETScreen Expert will be an indispensable tool for investors, project managers and decision makers at all levels seeking to get the most out of renewable energy investments. The RETScreen Expert software helps identify and analyze projects based on energy production and savings potential, identifies the best projects to be implemented at a given location, assesses financial risks and viability, and comprehensively tracks and verifies the actual performance of implemented projects, in turn feeding knowledge back into the system. CanmetENERGY projects that by 2022 RETScreen Expert will have over 1 million users, created over $100 billion in clean energy investments and saved 50 million metric tons of CO2 GHG emissions per year.
