About MEDREC / Networking


The Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP) is a Vienna-based non-profit organisation that aims to accelerate the market place for renewable energy and energy efficiency with a particular emphasis on the emerging markets and developing countries. Its primary focus is the scaling up of clean energy business models. REEEP was originally launched by the government of the United Kingdom along with other partners at the Johannesburg World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) in August 2002, and has since built a reputation as a small but active clean energy and development NGO. REEEP is currently comprised of over 200 partners including 35 governments. It has reached this position through its initiatives, interventions and programs. As part of its program, REEEP is granting financial assistance to projects with high energy efficiency and renewable energy vocations, projects that target companies, related policies, and regulatory energetic issues.

The Global Network on Energy for Sustainable Development (GNESD) is a network for sharing knowledge that has been initiated and supported by UNEP in 2002 at the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg, bringing together centres of excellence, the partners in the industrialized and developing countries recognized by their work in the field of energy development and the environment. The long-term goal of GNESD is to strengthen the capacity of national institutions in developing countries to develop policies and take actions for programming and research that integrate solutions to energy, environment, and development. MEDREC is one of the centres of excellence and members of the GNESD covering the countries of the southern Mediterranean. On the other hand MEDREC attended the working group meeting held in Denmark in August 2008 and at the annual meeting of the network and the working group meeting which was held in Poznan (Poland) in the margins of COP 14 in December 2008.

A Memorandum of Understanding for cooperation between MEDREC and the Renewable Energy Solutions for Mediterranean (RES4MED) has been formalized in the framework of the workshop that was held on December 18th, 2012 in Tunis entitled “Renewable Energy Sources and the energy market integration: Analysis and perspectives of the Mediterranean Cooperation”. RES4MED is an Association set up at the end of 2011 by CESI, Edison, Enel Green Power, GSE, PwC, and Politecnico di Milano. RES4MED aims to promote renewable energy sources and to analyze the conditions for integrated electricity markets in the Mediterranean area; it is meant as a think tank on energy context and perspectives of regional Mediterranean energy systems, to improve the political, economic, industrial and social framework and attract investments. MEDREC and RES4MED plan to cooperate in order to share and to reinforce their strategies currently under appraisal for the Mediterranean Countries.

The Global Bio-energy Partnership (GBEP) was created to implement the commitments made by the G8 at Gleneagles in 2005, which is an Action Plan made to support wider and cost effective deployment of biomass and bio-fuels, especially in developing countries where the use of biomass is prevalent. These commitments were designed to provide a mechanism for Partners to organize, coordinate, and implement targeted international research, development, demonstration, and commercial activities related to production, delivery, conversion and use of biomass for energy, with a focus on developing countries. GBEP provides also a forum to develop effective policy frameworks by:

  • Suggesting rules and tools to promote sustainable biomass and bio-energy development.
  • Facilitating investments in bio-energy
  • Promoting project development and implementation
  • Fostering R&D and commercial bio-energy activities
