We collaborate with regional and national organizations committed to accelerating the energy transition in their countries and globally. Our strong network of partners supports us in implementing our strategy.
It starts with an experienced team with direct exposure to both public sector (successfully implementing a multi-year RE programme as former public officials in a very complex environment) and private sector.
It includes innovative tools specifically designed for governments, such as the iTrust and the AREA digital platform, to successfully analyse, design, run and de-risk public RE programmes and unlock financial resources at scale (and at cheaper prices).
It focuses on real impact and programme implementation, an area where most governments usually lack capacity and proper specialised technical support.
It is independent and free of charge for governments, thanks to the support of our donors.
RELP team typically does not operate as an “external consultant''. On the contrary, we aim to work closer to governments, as an extended part of their teams, making available the type of support and tools we wished to have and didn’t have when we were working in government.
RELP collaborates with national and international organisations committed to accelerating the energy transition in their countries and globally. A strong network of partners is a key component of our strategy, helping us engage with more governments in developing countries and scale up our impact at a faster pace.
We are expanding our organisation and network of partners in Asia, Southeast Asia, Africa, Latin & Central America, and Eastern Europe.
As a partner of the SouthEast Asia Energy Transition Partnership (SEA ETP) and as a member of the UK COP26 Energy Transition Council (ETC) and its Rapid Response Facility (RRF), we currently coordinate efforts with IRENA, Agora Energiewende the UK Climate Compatible Growth Programme (CCG), USAID and other partners, to provide specialised technical support to several Southeast Asian countries (Lao PDR, the Philippines, Indonesia and Vietnam) and in Asia (Pakistan).
With the purpose of strengthening the regional network in South East Asia, we also partner with Clime Capital, a fund with headquarters in Singapore managing the Southeast Asia Clean Energy Facility (SEACEF), and we are assessing new partnership opportunities.
In the past couple of years, we have worked in Algeria (EU sponsored project), South Africa (European Climate Foundation sponsored project) and for the Government of Malawi (in partnership with RMI), providing a series of capacity-building activities on auction design and project finance for government officials. Now we are seeking to expand our work in several other countries to support the implementation of new clean electricity auctions, including better bankability features such as guarantees and other risk-mitigation tools.
In 2023 we are planning to open regional offices in East Africa (Nairobi), Southern Africa and West Africa to better position and explore concrete opportunities in few other countries, in collaboration with several MDBs and other partners.
We are assessing opportunities in "coal-heavy countries” to support a faster energy transition. Supporting existing EU platforms and programmes focusing on government-level technical assistance in the region and neighbouring countries. We can enable governments in the region to maximise the current benefits and financial resources made available through the EU Modernization Fund and Just Transition Fund. In particular, we can also help governments streamline renewable energy adoption to support their coal phase-out objectives.
We work with the Latin American Energy Organization (OLADE) network to gather insights on current strategic activities at a national level and to directly connect with energy ministries.
We have a strategic cooperation with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) focusing on renewable project development, power sector analysis, credit enhancement tools, risk mitigation, and programme-based guarantee design and implementation.
In the Caribbean we collaborate with IDB, RMI, the CDB and the Caribbean Climate Smart Accelerator to assess possible technical support to several governments.
