REEEP Project Outputs

  • FINANCIAMIENTO DE PROYECTOS EN EFICIENCIA ENERGETICA EN CENTROAMERICA

    Type: 
    Publication

    Presentation of specific financial mechanisms for investments in Energy Efficiency, developed by BUN-CA, within the framework of the Energy Efficiency Programme in order to detonate the markets of energy efficiency around the final use of the electricity in Central America.

  • 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.

  • Local Energy & Development Centres in Mozambique

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    Background

    Almost three-quarters of Mozambique’s 19 million inhabitants live on less than 2 USD per day. In these circumstances some 95% of all households in the country have no choice but to rely on firewood and charcoal as their main energy source.

    Purpose

    To use the establishment of community-driven centres to give poor and low income communities in the central part of Mozambique improved access to renewable and energy efficient services and to reduce the use of traditional biomass by 15% by 2015.

  • Renewable Energy Farming Solutions in Nicaragua:Tecnosol

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Nicaragua is an energy-poor and agriculture-dependent country. While the cattle and dairy sector is a dominating force among the country’s agricultural sectors, its productive output is remarkably low compared to that of neighbouring countries. Inefficient herding and farm management leads to hygiene issues, high loss of livestock and low production. Most small scale farmers lack access to modern energy. The sector is in dire need of productivity improvements to remain competitive in the region. 

  • Efficient Irrigation in Nicaragua: iDEal Tecnologias

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    Nicaragua, one of Central America’s poorest countries, increasingly suffers from droughts and unstable weather conditions, hampering yields and output of smallholder farmers dependent on agriculture for livelihood. While only up to 10% of arable land is irrigated, Nicaragua requires sustainable solutions for the sector to tackle water scarcity, improve production and food security, and reduce GHG emissions from inefficient and poor farming practices.
