The Energy Toolkit – Leading Instruments & Methodologies for Sustainable Energy Planning

Please Register here:


The LEDS Energy Toolkit is a collection of leading instruments and methodologies for sustainable energy planning. While not a complete encyclopedia of all available tools, the Toolkit aims to provide energy practitioners, policymakers, and experts a quick reference guide to some of the best established energy planning instruments that are available at no or low cost. The result is a compilation of 26 tools from agencies around the world. This webinar will present an overview of the newly updated, second publication of the toolkit and feature several leading tools. These tools will include the NREL Jobs and Economic Development Impact Model (JEDI) and the Natural Resources Canada RETScreen Clean Energy Management Software.
