REEEP To Disburse €3 million for Sustainable Energy Policy, Regulation & Innovative Finance Projects

The Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Project (REEEP) announced its fourth Call for Project Proposals at the Beijing International Renewable Energy Conference.

Proposals will be considered from organisations, including REEEP partners, active in policy and in the financing of renewable energy and energy efficiency. REEEP expects to deploy over €3 million to support projects identified under its fourth round. The funding for the fourth round is from the UK government.


REEEP will consider projects from around the world, however priority countries for this funding round include Angola, Brazil, China, India, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Nigeria, Russia and South Africa.

"This is our largest funding round since the inception of the REEEP", said Marianne Osterkorn, International Director. "The UK government should be recognised for its leadership in addressing issues of energy security and climate change, issues which energy efficiency and renewable energy can mitigate. We hope that other governments will become supporters of our partnership and provide the funding required to make clean energy a reality."

A combination of new projects, wait-listed projects from the third round, events, regional and partnership projects and strategic projects will be supported in the fourth round. REEEP intends to support over 40 additional projects and 5 events in its fourth programme round. Of these about 18 new projects would be supported through the time-bound open global call for new projects which begins today. Once selected the projects would begin in Spring next year.

The REEEP Programme portfolio currently consists of 58 projects spread over 25 countries, primarily funded by the UK Government. These projects represent an investment of over €5 million from REEEP which has achieved a leverage of about €32 million. More information about the current projects being supported by REEEP is available at www.reeep.org .

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
