Through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Government of the United States provides funding to the Private Financing Advisory Network (PFAN), a programme hosted by UNIDO and REEEP.
Previously, the U.S. Department of State, through the Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate, funded the creation of a Compendium of U.S. Best Practices, a guidebook of best practices in renewable energy from the state and city level in the United States.
The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) is responsible for climate protection, the environment, protection of biodiversity and the safety of nuclear facilities in Germany. The Ministry provides funding for the www.reegle.info website.
The Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) supports decision-makers in designing and delivering climate compatible development. It does this by combining research, advisory services and knowledge management in support of locally owned and managed policy processes. It works in partnership with decision-makers in the public, private and non-governmental sectors nationally, regionally and globally.
The UK Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has been a prominent funder of REEEP projects and operations since 2009. DECC envisions a thriving, globally competitive, low carbon energy economy.
Its key priorities are to save energy with the Green Deal and support vulnerable consumers; to deliver secure energy on the way to a low carbon energy future; to drive ambitious action on climate change at home and abroad; and manage the UK energy legacy responsibly and cost-effectively.
What does the reegle Tagging API actually do?
The reegle Tagging API (application programming interface) offers two core services to organisations that publish online resources relating to climate and clean energy:
Automated tagging of documents covering renewable energy, energy efficiency and climate relevant subjects
Suggestion of related documents from the rapidly growing content pool of items already indexed using the service
Automated tagging ensures that content is classified in a consistent way, which helps the end-user find the resources he or she is looking for. The suggestion of related documents helps to cover more angles of a given topic and can enrich your website's offering.
Important to know
Use of the reegle Tagging API is completely free of charge.
The reegle Tagging API can be used to index original content in five different languages: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese and German.
The API returns the formats RDF/XML and JSON.
To test its functionality on a block of text you provide yourself, try the demo at api.reegle.info/try
To see how others have incorporated the reegle Tagging API into their information services, check out the examples at api.reegle.info/usecases
On the site, web developers can register to get a free API key for each project, with no limit on the number of keys. When logged in, the dashboard includes a request builder to help developers to build the necessary code.

A collaborative project
The reegle Tagging API is a collaborative project led by REEEP (which manages the most widely-used free clean energy information portal,reegle.info), with three contributing partners: OpenEI, weADAPT and IDS/Eldis, and was made possible by support from the CDKN Innovation Fund.
Climate Week NYC is a key international platform for governments, businesses and civil society to collaborate on low carbon leadership, through a week filled with events, activities and high-profile meetings.
Developing countries will experience some of the worst impacts of climate change and given the constraints on the availability of public sector resources, it is generally accepted that significant private sector financing will be required to play a role in addressing many of the challenges of adaptation.
REEEP will be co-hosting the 2013 Climate Knowledge Brokers Workshop in Bonn from 8-9 June, during the middle weekend of the UNFCCC inter-sessionals. This invitation-only event aims to continue the process of forging stronger collaborative links between climate knowledge brokers working in the climate and development area.
