"The article is intended as a report on the performance of the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP) in delivering a global low-carbon energy market facilitation programme. The article documents REEEP's 5 years of experience in energy efficiency and renewable energy programme delivery, as well as market development in developing countries; it describes the delivery mechanisms, process, and governance before proceeding to analyze the REEEP portfolio. The article then assesses REEEP's experience in delivering a capacity building initiative, identifying lessons in the areas of programme management, carbon finance, financing, business models, energy in buildings, rural energy, energy regulation, and energy policy. The article demonstrates that REEEP programmes offer a number of lessons for policy makers and managers involved in climate change and development issues in developing countries. It also shows that REEEP is positioned to scale-up its activities and respond to requests that are currently constrained by limited resources. The article concludes by recommending the scaling up of REEEP's operations."
