About Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP)

The Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP) is a market catalyst for clean energy in developing countries and emerging markets. In this role, it acts as a funder, information provider and connector for up-scaling clean energy business models. REEEP has supported more than 180 clean energy projects in 58 countries and together with REN21 operates www.reegle.info, the leading clean energy information portal. Its 198 country energy profiles draw information from Linked Open Data sources and package it all together in user-friendly, easily-digestible dossiers.

The Partnership was established alongside the 2002 World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg.  Since its inception, the organisation has grown to comprise 385 Partner organisations including 45 governments as well as a range of private companies and international organisations.

REEEP has a network of Regional Secretariats on the ground around the globe, including China and India, ensuring that all activities are locally relevant and focused.

Over its lifetime, REEEP has been supported primarily by governments (Australia, Austria, Canada, the European Union, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Switzerland, the US and the United Kingdom), by institutions such as the OPEC Fund for International Development, and by contributions from the private sector.

Programs & Projects on Transport & Climate Change

- Linking Open Data to support Sustainable Urban Transport in booming cities:

REEEP is currently developing a project to harness the power of open data to accelerate development and increase usage of sustainable transport in large cities in emerging economies. REEEP believes that linking and opening up existing data will both improve transport planning, as well as increase passenger access to information, with the following impacts on the ground:

  • Rapid, large-scale sustainable transport implementation that is suited to the needs of cities and end users
  • High social, economic, and environmental return on sustainable transport investments
  • Increased use of public transport and concomitant decreased use of personal motorised vehicles, translating to less congestion and fewer accidents
  • Reduced fossil fuel consumption, leading to reductions in CO2 and other pollutant emissions
  • Improved access to affordable and safe mobility, especially for the poor

Implementing low carbon public transport in Jakarta

The new project on Linking Open Data to support Sustainable Transport in booming cities has grown out of discussions with ITDP, who implemented a REEEP-funded project in 2011-13 to introduce a ‘Direct Service’ pilot in Jakarta, integrating the Transjakarta BRT system with other bus services run by independent operators.

- Business model for solar charged e-bikes in Vietnam

REEEP is currently supporting a project to create an innovative business model for recharging and servicing e-bikes in Hanoi that alleviates poverty among the poor and handicapped, reduces CO2 emissions and is ready for up-scaling. The project will analyse the potential e-bike market, the available technologies and costs, and develop a business model. Good quality, affordable vehicles will be provided to students, who will recharge at solar-powered stations operated by the disabled. Public awareness and disseminating the lessons learnt to policy-makers will maximise the potential for replication in other cities.

- Cap and trade scheme for the Mexican auto industry

In 2009-2010 REEEP supported CTS-Embarq in Mexico to provide Mexico's National Institute of Ecology (INE) with a comprehensive economic analysis of its proposed cap and trade scheme for the Mexican automobile industry.
