As the title suggests, the project helped to strengthen the institutional capacity of the Bihar Renewable Energy Development Agency (BREDA), by building employee resource capabilities and enabling better management of different functions and procedures, thus helping the nodal agency discharge its duties more effectively and efficiently and providing better and prompt services to the public.

Taking inputs from the role envisaged for BREDA in the RE Policy of Bihar, WISE formulated a vision document that centred on decentralized renewable energy-based systems. The vision document made specific recommendations on interventions in the area of project planning and implementation, organizational structure and HRM, employee skill development and capacity building, financial management and governance, and communications and outreach. WISE also prepared a detailed business plan for BREDA. The work by WISE helped BREDA take on a more active role in decentralized energy development projects.

The project was supported by Shakti Sustainable Energy Foundation, New Delhi.
