RETScreen allows decision-makers and professionals to determine whether or not a proposed renewable energy, energy efficiency, or cogeneration project makes financial sense. If a project is viable—or if it is not—the software will help the user understand this quickly. The technologies included in RETScreen’s energy models are all inclusive, and include both traditional and non-traditional sources of clean energy as well as conventional energy sources and technologies. Fully integrated into these analytical models are product, project, benchmark, hydrology and climate databases.

Course participants will learn how to use RETScreen to conduct a five step standard analysis, including energy analysis, cost analysis, emission analysis, financial analysis, and sensitivity/risk analysis. They will also learn how to track the ongoing energy performance of projects using the new RETScreen Performance Analysis Module.

This beginner-level course will provide an intensive introduction to the RETScreen Clean Energy Project Analysis Software, including:
  • Overview of the RETScreen software
  • Energy efficiency, heating, cooling and power project analysis
  • Greenhouse gas emissions analysis
  • Financial & risk analysis
  • Databases & engineering tools
  • Overview of legal and policy toolkits
  • On-going energy performance analysis
  • Hands-on completion of project templates and case studies
