Guidance Materials and Tools

The DREI framework has been designed to be applied flexibly and to be tailored to a specific renewable energy technology and national context.

 

The framework is organised into four stages: (i) risk environment, (ii) public instruments, (iii) levelised cost and (iv) evaluation. Each of these four stages is in turn divided into two steps. Chapter 2 of the original DREI report  provides a comprehensive overview of the main aspects of each of the framework’s four stages and eight steps.

 

In addition, in order to support the practical application of the DREI framework, a number of more detailed guidance notes (PDF), materials (PowerPoint) and tools (Excel) are available for download on this page.
