Overview

RETScreen Expert Software is an intelligent decision support tool to enable stakeholders to rapidly identify, assess, optimize and track the performance of clean energy investments over the entire project life cycle.The software can be used to evaluate:

  • Clean energy options
  • The energy production, savings and costs
  • Financial viability and risk for renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies
  • GHG Emission reductions
  • The performance of implemented projects

 

As an approved RETScreen Expert training provider, CIET will provide each participant with a fully functional 90-day trial subscription in the days before the training session (value of $200). In the meantime, participants can download the software in Viewer mode completely free-of-charge.

Objectives

Participants will develop their skills in the analysis of all types of energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies. Further, they will develop a sound understanding of the new analysis functions provided by the software, such as the Virtual Energy Analyzer and the Portfolio Analysis Module as well as the monitoring of energy performance data. Upon training completion, participants will be able to:

  • Quickly gauge a facility’s energy performance using benchmarking, and evaluate energy costs and savings, GHG reductions and financing viability.
  • Determine the energy production and savings potential for any location in the world employing Archetypes.
  • Verify the performance of implemented projects and find opportunities for further energy improvements.
  • Manage energy across a large number of facilities and achieve energy-related investment goals using the Portfolio Analysis. 
  • Automate and link data sources and other software tools directly with RETScreen Expert using the RETScreen Connect advanced scripting tool.

Important COVID-19 Update for CIET Spring 2020 Training Calendar – CIET Goes Virtual!

Last Updated: April 21, 2020

 

CIET Goes Virtual!

The entire CIET team has been working hard recently to provide new training options for you through virtual real-time classrooms considering the current situation. This will allow everyone to continue accessing CIET training in a safe manner, which protects both our participants and our trainers. You can register for these virtual courses in confidence, knowing that they will provide the same quality of training that you expect from CIET. These real-time training sessions will be available to all participants across Canada.

 

REGISTER FOR VIRTUAL TRAINING TODAY!

 

You can find more information about CIET’s virtual training approach:


Postponement/cancellation policy

You can postpone your registration to a future session if desired, though we cannot yet determine how long the COVID-19 crisis will last. Indications from governments seem to indicate that isolation and travel restrictions might last for longer than we would like. For now, we propose keeping the registrations of all participants active. We will inform you of new dates as they become possible/available, including our new Fall 2020 training dates, which should be announced in May-June. Should you wish to cancel later, we have suspended our cancellation policy and there are no fees for any cancellation effective immediately.

Through all these measures, CIET hopes to provide as much flexibility as possible to training participants while respecting its commitments to other participants, trainers and partners, as well as public health recommendations.

 We thank you very much for your trust and collaboration and look forward to welcoming you in our virtual classrooms!
