REEEP Project Outputs

  • Amazonia Renewable Energy Company

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Sectors:

    Background

    The Brazilian NGO IDEAAS seeks to spread renewable energy solutions and encourage social entrepreneurship. A previous REEEP project funded the creation of its Learning Center for Renewable Energy and Decentralized Generation located in a rural area of southern Brazil. This complex has given government and utilities hands-on proof that off-grid and decentralized energy are a viable and potentially profitable option for remote areas of the country.

  • Scaling up the Energy Inclusion Initiative in rural Peru

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    Background

    The EII is a successful program initiated by Appui au Développement Autonome (ADA) and MicroEnergy International (MEI) which aims to increase access to clean energy through inclusive financial and technical services. A pilot project was launched in Peru with the technical assistance of local partners EnDev/GIZ Peru.

    Purpose

    To scale up the EII project in Peru by expanding the loan to more FS branches and widening the range of clean energy technologies offered thereby providing a successful business model for clean energy dissemination in Peru

  • Powering Water Supply in South Africa: Small hydro opportunities on existing infrastructure

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Sectors:

    Background

    The purpose of the project is to identify tangible and profitable opportunities to install mini hydro (e.g. 100kW to 1MW) on existing water supply infrastructure in the Republic of South Africa using Durban City Council as a model. Durban (eThhekwini) Council has progressed the development of two mini hydro schemes on existing infrastructure (to tender stage) but are unable to fund the development of other opportunities that exist.

  • Clean energy policy and regulation in Tonga

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    Background

    Tonga recently passed the Renewable Energy Bill of 2008 and is now the first Pacific island country (PIC) to have this sort of key instrument for promoting renewable energy (RE). The emergence of the law itself was the product of strong regional cooperation: it was drafted by PIEPSAP (A Danish Government funded Pacific Region's - "Pacific Islands Energy Policy and Strategic Action Plan") and reviewed by PIGGAREP (A GEF/UNDP funded through South Pacific Regional Environmental Program's "Pacific Islands Greenhouse Gas Abatement through Renewable Energy Project").

  • Regulating off-grid renewable energy tariffs in Mozambique

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Sectors:

    Background

    Although grid electricity tariffs in Mozambique are currently set by the Ministry of Finance there is no regulation on tariff-setting for off-grid electricity generated from renewable energy sources. For the success of FUNAE (the Portuguese acronym for Mozambique National Fund for Rural Electrification) it is critical to have a tariff setting tool based on a detailed and accurate analysis of all the financial economic social and environmental aspects that directly influence the cost of providing electricity generated from renewable energy sources in off grid locations.

  • Tourism energy efficiency investment programme in Indonesia

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    Background

    REEEP previously co-financed a low carbon tourism alliance in Fiji. The Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF) then built on this with a Tourism Energy Efficiency Investment Programme (TEEIP) which assisted Fijian hotels and resorts that were investing in energy efficiency retrofits and leveraged the generation and trading of carbon credits.

    Purpose

    To design a Tourism Energy Efficiency Investment (TEEIP) framework programme for the Indonesian tourism sector including energy efficiency and carbon offset elements building on WWF’s experience in Fiji
