  10. 10. Value of REEEP for market transformation as other organizations emerge? <ul><li>Build on a substantial track record of market transforming projects </li></ul><ul><li>Flexible in meeting specific country or regional needs and promoting innovative approaches which would not get funded otherwise </li></ul><ul><li>Fast reaction on needs and opportunities: maximum 6 months from identification to implementation </li></ul><ul><li>Technology and methodology neutral, Best-for-customer approach </li></ul><ul><li>Increase impact by sharing of learnings and communication of all REEEP activities on a regional and global level </li></ul><ul><li>Flexible, Fast and Focused </li></ul>
  11. 11. REEEP project activities are the partnership’s core business <ul><li>All projects aim to </li></ul><ul><li>support REEEP’s mission – accelerating the uptake of renewable energy and energy efficiency </li></ul><ul><li>contribute to two major objectives </li></ul><ul><ul><li>reduce greenhouse gas emissions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>improve access to clean energy for poor </li></ul></ul><ul><li>geographically focus on “plus five” countries and selected LDCs </li></ul><ul><li>concentrate on the two types targeted actions which can deliver highest impact and replication </li></ul><ul><ul><li>assisting with establishing legal and regulatory frameworks </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>developing innovative finance and business models to make RE and EE a bankable proposition </li></ul></ul><ul><li>emphasize impacts and outputs which can be replicated </li></ul><ul><li>be amplified by REEEP services and strategic actions </li></ul>
  12. 12. REEEP’s project portfolio contains 130 projects undertaken in more than 65 countries 17 12 6 8 21 3 1 2 2 1 4 1 2 2 1 <ul><li>REEEP is currently implementing 65 projects </li></ul><ul><li>more than 60% undertaken in emerging markets </li></ul>1 4 1 2
  13. 13. REEEP programmes follow a transparent process: a bottom-up approach to identify, select and monitor projects
  14. 14. REEEP is a “grant organisation“ focusing on targeted innovative interventions
  15. 15. An independent Analytical and Synthesis Study confirms the high effectiveness of REEEP projects <ul><li>90% of projects were rated successful against their stated objective </li></ul><ul><li>REEEP developed good practices in providing renewable energy and energy efficient services to the poor </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Promotion of ESCO schemes and working with small and medium sized businesses are particularly effective </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Stakeholder participation is a central feature of REEEP projects and an instrumental factor in successes </li></ul><ul><li>REEEP is a relatively small player in the countries and sectors where it acts, but has proportionally high results for the level of funds disbursed </li></ul><ul><li>Projects often have the desired catalyst effect in market development. </li></ul>Project success vs. stated objective Source: Consortium Le Groupe-Conseil baastel Itée & Econoler International
