REEEP's global network of Regional Secretariats are our eyes and ears on the ground. These offices are hosted by highly respected organisations who share a strong belief in clean energy development. Their functions include:
- ensuring that the Partnership understands and meets the needs on the ground in their area
- assisting applicants during REEEP project funding rounds, and in later stages, helping to evaluate shortlisted project proposals
- keeping tuned into national and regional clean energy initiatives, and building strong working links with local offices of NGOs and other like-minded organisations
- supporting REEEP Partners in their respective regions in gaining political leverage and building business acumen
In addition to its Regional Secretariats, REEEP has a local focal point for West Africa, based in Cape Verde at the Regional Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE) of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).
