WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, Aug. 28) – The Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency Partnership or REEEP says donor countries need to become more involved in efforts to develop renewable energy in the Pacific.

REEEP is an active, global public-private partnership that structures policy and regulatory initiatives for clean energy, and facilitates financing for energy projects around the globe.

[PIR editor’s note: The Vienna, Austria-based international organization REEEP promotes and helps finance renewable energy projects around the world. The organization is funded by a number of governments including: Australia, Austria, Canada, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, The United Kingdom, The United States and the European Commission.]

Its officials are this week meeting in New Zealand, determining what strategies to adopt to promote renewable energy in the Pacific over the next year.

REEEP’s Finance Advisor Mike Allen says they are encouraged by the political will shown by Pacific energy ministers to work together for renewable and sustainable energy. But he says donor countries in the region now need to also be coordinated into these efforts.
