United Kingdom

The UK Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has been a prominent funder of REEEP projects and operations since 2009.  DECC envisions a thriving, globally competitive, low carbon energy economy. 

Its key priorities are to save energy with the Green Deal and support vulnerable consumers; to deliver secure energy on the way to a low carbon energy future; to drive ambitious action on climate change at home and abroad; and manage the UK energy legacy responsibly and cost-effectively.

Beyond DECC, the Government of the United Kingdom has been a longstanding supporter of REEEP, dating back to the very first announcement to form the Partnership at the closing session of the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg in 2002.

From October 2003 to March 2005, prior to REEEP's establishment as an independent entity, a total of 48 projects were managed by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office Global Opportunities Fund under the REEEP banner.

Since the founding of REEEP as an independent Austrian non-profit association in 2004, the UK Government has helped to fund the organisation's administration and contributed to all of its project funding cycles to date, first through the Department of the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), and most recently through the Department of Energy and Climate Change.

A sampling of projects enabled by UK funding is found below.
