Renewable Energy Implementation Toolkit Development and Demonstration in South Asia: Sri Lanka
The Global Environmental Institute (GEI) has developed a Renewable Energy Implementation (REI) toolkit that evaluates, implements and scales-up renewable energy (RE) projects at national and regional levels. The toolkit includes GIS analysis, technology application MCA screening and financial analysis, and has been used to design industrial rooftop solar PV installation projects in China’s Guangdong Province. In 2018, the REI toolkit was used for deploring solar power potential of Gampola Town, Sri Lanka – about 1.8MW rooftop solar PV. This toolkit, coupled with GEI's experience on providing technical assistance on renewable energy development planning was shared with clean energy policy-makers and experts to enable developing countries in Asia to achieve their climate change commitments by adopting a demand-side intervention approach.
