About the Toolkit

The Renewable Energy Local Area Development toolkit has been developed to help the legislators organize a renewable energy plan in their respective constituencies. The toolkit highlights the importance of clean and renewable energy technologies at the local level, and provides comprehensive information and details on implementing renewable energy projects. The toolkit will not only help legislators (MPs and MLAs) in developing a local renewable energy plan but also implement Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency projects through which the following multiple development objectives can be met:

  • Electrification and basic energy service improvement

  • Livelihood improvement

  • Enterprise development

  • Employment generation

  • Energy security

  • Climate change mitigation

  • Finance Mobilization

  • Support government schemes

The Renewable Energy Toolkit has been divided into five separate parts, yet linked to help build a local area plan for deploying renewable energy projects in the respective constituency.

The RE LAD Toolkit is a Climate Parliament Initiative and has been prepared by GSES
