Empowering Cleaner Energy Decisions

Energy efficiency


The RETScreen Clean Energy Project Analysis Software can be used to evaluate various types of Energy Efficiency Measures Projects. It can investigate the viability of energy efficiency improvements in a wide range of residential, commercial, institutional buildings, and industrial facilities, from single-family homes and apartment complexes, to office buildings, to hospitals, to large pulp and paper mills. The software can be used to assess projects incorporating a variety of energy efficiency measures associated with building envelope, ventilation, lights, electrical equipment, hot water, pumps, fans, motors, process electricity, process heat, process steam, steam losses, heat recovery, compressed air, refrigeration, and more. It is useful for both new construction and retrofits. Whole facilities can be modelled, or sub-systems and rooms can be studied individually.
