Description/achievement of initiative

A Renewables Readiness Assessment (RRA) is a holistic assessment of conditions for renewable energy deployment in a country that helps create an enabling policy framework for attracting finance.

Implementation methodologies

The RRA methodology is designed to be globally applicable, but it is expected that it will be of particular relevance to developing countries looking to increase their deployment of renewable energy sources. To date, the RRA methodology and process has been tested in the ECOWAS (Economic Community of West African States) and SADC (Southern African Development Community) regions of Africa.
