    Energy Project Resource Center is designed to help WBG teams clients and practitioners design finance and implement renewable energy projects around the world Renewable energy is making rapid inroads in World Bank Group client countries with developing countries accounting for 112 billion in renewable energy investment in 2012 or 46 percent of the global total The Bank Group s own operations in this area have grown rapidly totaling 11 6 billion in financing from 2008 2013 representing the largest category in the WBG s overall energy portfolio during that period Yet even with this growth in activity client governments private investors and World Bank teams still lack easy access to practical information resources to support the design and implementation of renewable energy projects To fill this gap the World Bank s Energy Sector Management Assistance Program ESMAP has developed the Renewable Energy Project Resource Center in partnership with Energypedia an independent non profit energy information provider originally set up by GIZ The RE Project Resource Center brings together working level project documents such as sample terms of reference TOR sample legal documents sample surveys and questionnaires examples of economic and financial analysis project case studies Click here to find out

  • PV Systems for Rural Health Facilities in Developing Areas | GVEP International
    considered sufficiently in many cases due to improper system design battery misuse and under estimation of the daily load Main criteria for selecting the appropriate technology are the economic and technical aspects of power generation options in rural areas In small off grid health facilities where the daily load is low experience shows that autonomous PV systems are considered to be the best energy option However for medium and large facilities where the daily load is high hybrid systems e g PV with diesel generators are likely to be the most economic and reliable power option Lessons learned from field activities recommend installing a separate PV system only for vaccine refrigerator powering Due to their energy efficiency compressor refrigerators are recommended more than absorption refrigerators and the new generation of solar direct drive vaccine refrigerators can be an appropriate choice In the deployment of off grid PV programs in developing countries a significant role is played by main conducive factors which include regulatory frameworks institutional frameworks and business models These factors can function through setting up a clear policy and establishing an efficient management system as well as a transparent financial scheme to enable ambitious programs Lessons learned from past
