In addition to adding new features related to the off-grid market, we made key updates to existing features.

Country profiles

Power sector structures now include country-specific notes for each sub-indicator that can be visualized when hovering over them. Installed capacity charts now allow the user to visualize the full capacity mix split by technology.

Country comparison tool

Use the tool to compare where countries stack up in Climatescope. The tool now includes all the indicators found on country profiles including their price attractiveness for clean energy development, financing levels, policy environments, and more.

Policy library

The library contains well over 800 policies described in simple language and links to underlying texts such as legislation and regulation. The library now has a new filter that allows you to sort policies by the most important renewable energy policy types, such as auctions or feed-in tariffs.
