This month Climatelinks focused on policies, programs, finance facilities and partnerships contributing to the rapid scale-up up clean energy. Below are the many reports, case studies, blogs, tools, websites, videos and webinars that the Climatelinks community shared with us on the topic. Resources range from strategies to scale up clean energy finance, renewable energy assessments, analyses on integrating renewable energy into the grid or expanding off-grid options, case studies on clean energy benefits to local communities, a country specific renewable-energy-friendly policy database, to examples of renewable energy deployment in island countries, India and Africa.
To receive our next Community Spotlights call to share your organization's resources, sign up here. We look forward to featuring your suggested knowledge products with the Climatelinks community via our blogs, newsletter and social media!
