The Renewables Readiness Assessment (RRA) is a comprehensive tool for assessing the conditions existing in a country for the development and deployment of renewable energy, along with the actions required to improve those conditions. Designed and refined by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) since 2011, the RRA is a country-initiated, country-led process that identifies short- to medium-term actions for the rapid scale-up of renewables.

Although IRENA produces RRA reports to disseminate valuable country-level knowledge, the final product of the RRA process is not a report or publication. Rather, the RRA is expected to catalyse new initiatives, refine policies and regulations to create an enabling environment, and identify needed capacity-building measures, among other benefits.

RRA reports have been published for Vanuatu, Kiribati, RMI and the Fiji Islands. Refer to Publications below.
