To guide advances in the development and deployment of clean energy technologies in island nations and territories, the international partnership for Energy Development in Island Nations (EDIN) provides information resources that can help island communities
- Establish governmental policy that encourages energy efficiency measures and renewable energy development
- Develop financing and other resources for renewable energy and energy efficiency projects
- Understand, integrate, and plan for energy efficiency and renewable energy technology options through direct technical assistance and information provided at island clean energy workshops.
The National Renewable Laboratory (NREL) is the principal research laboratory for the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. In addition to providing EDIN project participants with technical assistance, NREL offers information about clean energy technologies and their deployment through its Learning About Renewable Energy and Applying Technologies websites.
