A New Scheme for the Promotion of Renewable Energies in Developing Countries: The Renewable Energy Regulated Purchase TariffType:PublicationSectors:
This report sets out the main findings of discussions carried out by the Developing Countries Group of the European Photovoltaic Technology Platform with regard to identifying and defining an effective financial mechanism to bolster renewables in microgrids as a part of a least-cost strategy for rural electrification at village-scale in developing countries.
Beyond Bonn: World Bank Group Progress on Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency in Fiscal 2005 - 2009Type:PublicationPublication date:
This report is the fifth in a series documenting the World Bank Group’s progress in supporting renewable energy and energy efficiency. It details the successes of, and lessons learned from, the investments made by the World Bank Group over the past five years. The case studies included in the report provide specific examples of financial and technical innovations that the World Bank Group has employed for financing of energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. An overview of World Bank supported projects, grants, and programs by region is also provided.

This web-based database provides detailed project output documents from Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP) projects. The database contains output documents from specific types of energy access, energy efficiency, and renewable energy programmes. These documents can be searched based for certain technologies or particular countries. Output documents are in English, Spanish, Chinese, French, and Portuguese. REEEP projects aim to improve access to clean and reliable energy in developing countries.
reegle's policy and regulatory overviews provide country highlights for a variety of policies and regulations relating to energy, energy efficiency, fuels, standards and labeling, incentives such as feed-in tariffs for renewables, national targets, and other national strategies for low-carbon development.
This reegle website provides comprehensive energy profiles for all countries with information from reliable sources such as UN or the World Bank. Profile information includes national policies on energy-related issues, visualized statistics, renewable energy potentials maps, national projects programmes, and key stakeholders.
