REToolkit provides a broad set of tools to assist 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 WBG 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.
This toolkit and the two accompanying business cases have been developed to assist local authorities to assess the impact of investing in energy efficiency measures within their street lighting system. It covers measures such as LED lighting, control systems and the use of dimming and trimming. It is designed as an initial feasibility assessment. The Toolkit has been developed with technical expertise provided by Ove Arup & Partners and in consultation with the SCOTS street lighting team.
