Accelerating the Global Energy Transition

For over twenty years, REEEP has been advancing the deployment of reliable and affordable clean energy solutions in low- and middle-income countries for the benefit of last-mile customers and the most vulnerable populations.
At the core of REEEP's approach lies a comprehensive blend of financial instruments, capacity building, facilitation of stakeholder cooperation and technical assistance. We identify market needs to develop and implement programmes which bridge financing and knowledge gaps, enabling private sector players to operate successfully in frontier markets. We work closely with stakeholders across the public and private sectors to ensure holistic programme design and implementation rooted in local needs, decreasing risk in clean energy investment and driving long-lasting ecosystem change.

Once proven successful, these initiatives can be scaled up and replicated across multiple markets. Our small size means we are able to innovate, adapt and create at a speed and flexibility unmatched by larger organisations.

We create market change

In the 20 years since REEEP was launched, we have gained deep experience and understanding of market development, evolving a unique approach to achieving sustainable impact. Our goals are to:

  • Facilitate reliable and affordable access to energy
  • Build up local financial ecosystems around clean energy investment
  • Support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement
  • Increase climate resilience through clean energy solutions
  • Catalyse social and equitable development through clean energy
