The high cost of developing comprehensive and customized legal and financial documentation can be a barrier to the implementation of energy efficiency,renewable energy and cogeneration projects. In support of RETScreen’s goal of reducing the transaction costs associated with implementing clean energy projects, the RETScreen Clean Energy Legal Toolkit has been developed. This initiative was undertaken by NRCan/CanmetENERGY’s RETScreen International in association with the Energy + Environment Foundation (EEF) and supported financially by a grant from the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP). Some legal documents have been contributed pro bono by lawyers from leading American firms.
