In over twenty years, we have learned and honed our approach, starting with broad-based calls covering a wide range of clean energy projects in dozens of countries around the world, working with our partnership of governments, international organisations, the private sector and civil society as well as research institutes, think tanks and academia.
REEEP co-created and ran the Sustainable Energy Regulators Network (SERN) from 2006-2014, a deeply influential network which guided the government institutions charged with clean energy development in knowledge exchange with regulators to create stable policy and regulatory mechanisms which helped to grow the clean energy market.
In the mid-2000s, REEEP’s contribution to strategic developments in clean energy policy was instrumental in kick starting major policy shifts in the BRICS countries – such as wind power in Brazil and solar PV in China – that are still shaping these economies’ energy policies today.
REEEP’s 2015-2017 investment portfolio ”Powering Agrifood Value Chains” was a forerunner in supporting the water-food-energy nexus, comprised of eight high-potential SMEs active in Asia, Eastern Africa and Central America.
The Private Financing Advisory Network, co-hosted by REEEP and UNIDO has leveraged over USD 3 billion in investment for climate and clean energy by over 1300 PFAN-supported projects and businesses.
REEEP’s design and implementation of the Beyond the Grid Fund for Zambia served as the successful pilot of the Beyond the Grid Fund for Africa, which is now a EUR 126 million programme active in six sub-Saharan countries with the aim to connect 6.5 million people to affordable energy access by 2028.
