Nusa Dua, Bali [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) has officially launched the latest version of RETScreen, a software tool developed by NRCan for renewable energy technologies.
This version includes a full array of financially viable renewable power, heating and cooling technologies and energy-efficiency measures. The new energy-efficiency models are used for residential, commercial and institutional buildings, and for industrial facilities and processes. RETScreen now also features access to NASA’s global climate data.
“Today’s announcement demonstrates how Canada is developing and sharing knowledge that allows Canadians and the global community to make cleaner energy choices,” said Canadian Minister of The Environment John Baird. “Renewable energy initiatives play a significant role in Canada’s fight against climate change, and RETScreen is helping to improve air quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Canada and abroad.”More information about RETScreen and a copy of the software can be obtained at from RETScreen.com.
