Release of new RetScreen Hydro model

World Bank and UNEP - Release of New Wind and Hydro Models
Natural Resources Canada's CETC-Varennes, along with the World Bank's Prototype Carbon Fund (PCF) and the United Nations Environment Programme's (UNEP) Division of Technology, Industry and Economics (DTIE), are co-operating to develop and incorporate an improved greenhouse gas emissions baseline tool into the RETScreen International Clean Energy Project Analysis Software. This inclusion will enable RETScreen users to better estimate the potential of carbon finance for their projects.

RETScreen International - Version 3.0 upgrades include a metric/imperial unit switch; updated product data; an enhanced GHG model to account for the emerging rules under the Kyoto Protocol; and a new Sensitivity & Risk Analysis worksheet. The Wind Energy and Small Hydro Project Models are now available, with the other existing technology models to be upgraded.

RETScreen now has more than 53,000 software users in 205 countries around the world and is growing at 250 new users every week.
