Project Description and Summary of Services






IIEC focused on capacity-building for CORE (Council on Renewable Energy) because it comprised of the same government officials and policymakers that the Asian Development Bank (ADB) dealt with, and because CORE could conduct technical studies and implement projects with the ADB.

IIEC’s accomplishments in relation to this capacity-building project included: (1) obtaining CORE's first institutional funding; (2) CORE’s adoption of market-based methods of renewable energy dissemination in lieu of traditional methods; and (3) helping CORE establish connections in the international renewables community.
