14 January 2013 – The Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP) will fund 28 new projects that aim to scale up renewable energy and energy efficient solutions in key emerging markets and in selected developing countries in Africa and Asia.
“The nexus between clean energy, food production and water provision is one of the exciting new areas we are looking at,” Eva Oberender, REEEP’s programme director, says. “This includes developing solar-powered cold-storage for fishing communities in Indonesia, solar-powered pumps for irrigation in Kenya and Burkina Faso, and improvements in energy efficiency in Chinese agriculture.”
Several of the 28 selected projects replicate or scale up successful initiatives previously funded by REEEP.
