This publication presents a structured methodology that countries can use to assess their capacity to produce renewable energy statistics. It describes seven main requirements for effective data collection, highlighting some of the challenges often faced by countries in each area and suggesting improvements that can be made. It also presents three simple tools that can be used by countries to identify current data flows and assess their capacities in each of these areas.
The IRENA Statistics Team helps countries to collect and analyse their renewable energy statistics, by publishing guidelines, manuals and short studies and by providing technical guidance to countries as requested. This methodology has already been used by IRENA in statistical capacity-building activities in a number of countries, and the Statistics Team would be happy to provide further guidance to countries on this topic
