Description REEEP is an international multilateral partnership that works to accelerate market-based deployment of renewable energy and energy efficient systems in developing countries.
Objectives REEEP invests in clean energy markets to help developing countries expand modern energy services and improve lives; increase prosperity and economic dynamism; and keep CO2 emissions in check: a paradigm commonly known as green growth. REEEP’s tools are modern clean energy technologies – renewable energy and energy efficiency – market forces, and knowledge management.
Activities REEEP is a pathfinder organisation which invests in and works with small- and medium-sized enterprises offering clean energy solutions in frontier markets, primarily in East and Southern Africa and in Southeast Asia.

REEEP designs public-private financing approaches, leveraging partnerships with governments and the private sector to unlock new sources of financing for the low-carbon energy transition.

REEEP is the executing partner of the Private Financing Advisory Network (PFAN), which offers business coaching and investor matchmaking to climate and clean energy projects from low and middle-income countries all over the world.

REEEP is a leading promoter and publisher of Linked Open Data, and a founding member of the Climate Knowledge Brokers Group. REEEP works to make good-quality, relevant and timely climate change information available to decision makers everywhere.

Comments on indicators and goals Enterprises selected for the REEEP Portfolio are granted an initial financial injection to allow them to test and demonstrate the viability of their innovations in the market. PFAN then provides participants with business and strategy mentoring, and investor matchmaking to help transition projects from donor to private financing.

Since 2016, PFAN is jointly hosted by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and REEEP in a ground-breaking institutional arrangement that will bring the strengths of the three organisations together toward significantly scaling-up private investment in clean energy and climate change across the developing world.
