The Renewable Energy Insurance Training Kit prepared by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), BASE and CarbonRe, with support from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) has been designed to enhance the understanding of insurers, financers and other renewable energy project sponsors, of climate change issues, renewable energy policy frameworks, insurance practices, risk management tools and approaches that can be developed for the renewable energy markets.
This training has been structured for self-educational purposes and is intended to be practical. It consists of six modules covering the key aspects of insurance for renewable energy projects, with a focus on developing countries conditions. At the end of each module, a lesson review, list of key terms, useful links and multiple choice questions have been provided.

The Guidelines on Environmental Due Diligence for Renewable Energy Technologies are a practical tool for financiers and investors to check and mitigate their risk of investments in this sector. These guidelines, developed by BASE on behalf of UNEP, intend to provide practical, standardised procedures for identifying and managing environmental impacts associated with investments in particular renewable energy technologies.
The guidelines are available for the following technologies: wind, solar PV, solar thermal, biogas, biomass systems based on agricultural and forestry waste, biomass systems based on energy crops, geothermal, and small-scale hydroelectric.
