Purpose of the association:

REEEP’s vision is that in low- and middle-income countries, people have have access to affordable low carbon energy services provided by various players in a sustainable marketSustainable markets involves sustainable production, design and transport and offers consumers sustainable goods and services. It also involves fair working conditions for all involved in a process.. REEEP’s mission is to advance market readiness for clean energy and energy accessEnergy access represents a crucial yet often overlooked dimension to the issue of poverty. Relatively small amounts of energy can satisfy the basic needs of rural populations and have a dramatic impact on quality of life. Despite this, approximately 3 billion people , half the worlds population, ... in developing countries, especially for the benefit of the most vulnerable populations. REEEP’s vision and mission are firmly anchored in the Sustainable Development GoalsSince Rio+20, there is commitment for the of post-2015 development goals to take over after the Millennium Development Goals and the establishment of the new Sustainable Development Goals, or SDGs. of the United Nations (in particular SDG7 – energy – and SDG13 – climate) as well as the UN Framework Convention on Climate ChangeClimate change is a lasting change in weather patterns over long periods of time. It can be a natural phenomena and and has occurred on Earth even before people inhabited it. Quite different is a current situation that is also referred to as climate change, anthropogenic climate change, or ... (UNFCCCThe United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change is an international environmental treaty that resulted from the Earth Summit in Rio in 1992. Their aim is to limit GHG emissions to levels that will not threaten the environment and livleyhoods.) and the Paris Agreement.

The statutory objectives of REEEP are to:

  • Support climate and environment protection by promoting the development and advancement of market readiness for renewable energy and energy efficiency in low- and middle-income countries;
  • Support equitable development by promoting access to affordable and clean energy services in these countries;
  • Support the implementation of the Sustainable DevelopmentThe concept of sustainable development was introduced in the World Conservation Strategy (IUCN 1980) and had its roots in the concept of a sustainable society and in the management of renewable resources. Adopted by the WCED in 1987 and by the Rio Conference in 1992 as a process of change in ...

  • Accelerate the market growth of low carbon renewable and energy efficiency systems, decrease their costsCost: The consumption of resources such as labour time, capital, materials, fuels, etc. as the consequence of an action. In economics, all resources are valued at their opportunity cost, which is the value of the most valuable alternative use of the resources. Costs are defi ned in a variety of ... and turn them into affordable energy options for all.
