RCREEE and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) have initiated the Diesel to Solar (D2S) initiative which enables the regional transition towards sustainable energy and helps address climate change issues in the Arab region. It encourages private investors to reduce diesel consumption by integrating solar PV technology into existing...
RCREEE joined a consortium of international organizations led by the German Aerospace Center (DLR) to develop an interactive solar Atlas for the Mediterranean Region. The initiative funded by the German International Climate Initiative is a comprehensive online solar energy and socioeconomic data map and information portal dedicated to the...
RCREEE organized a series of capacity development programs in 2011 and 2012 on “Renewable Energy Pricing and Trading Systems”.  The programs included key pricing and trading concepts and their design such as Feed-in Tariff (FiT), Green Certificates, and Guarantee of Origin. The project aimed to provide RCREEE member states with the national,...
RCREEE, in partnership with the Plan Bleu and MED-ENEC took the initiative in January, 2011 to study energy efficiency indicators for 10 Arab countries in South and East Mediterranean region covering Morocco, Algeria, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Libya, Palestine, Tunisia, and Yemen. The project aims to provide tools to the decision makers to...
RCREEE takes the initiative of establishing a quality certification scheme for the production of solar thermal products and services in the Arab region. The aim is to leverage many opportunities on a regional scale for achieving production economies of scale, facilitating trade barriers, streamlining compliance monitoring, creating jobs, and...
RCREEE noticed a lack of proper renewable energy projects tendering processes and policies in the region. This project offers model guidelines for Land Use Agreements (LUA), and Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) for creating large-scale renewable energy projects tendering documents. This enhances the private sector engagement in the region through...
The National Energy Efficiency Action Plan (NEEAP) is a strategic national plan framework that helps Arab countries to apply energy efficiency goals. Since the initiative inception in 2010, RCREEE has been a main enabler to help countries apply this vision. The aim for this guideline is to foster and improve electricity efficiency and consumption...
Within the framework of the Memo of Understanding signed by RCREEE and IRENA, RCREEE was commissioned to prepare two national case studies for Egypt and Morocco. The case studies were on the role of resource assessment in designing policies within the global RE Atlas initiative. Moreover, RCREEE conducted a position paper for IRENA on “...
The Arab Future Energy Index (AFEX) is a policy assessment and benchmark tool that provides a detailed comparison of renewable energy and energy efficiency development in 17 countries of the Arab region on more than 30 different indicators. Despite ongoing turbulence in the region, these countries have continued to make progress toward creating...
