Main objectives
REPP seeks to mobilise private sector development activity and investment in small and medium scale renewable energy projects (up to 25MW) in sub-Saharan Africa.

Main activities
REPP works with service and finance providers (REPP Partners) to bridge the gap between the Levelised Cost of Electricity (LCOE) and the prevailing tariff in each country, by tailoring a range of services to each project. These services include providing technical assistance to projects, facilitating access to existing risk mitigation instruments and long term lending from REPP partners as well as providing results-based finance, for example, in the form of top-ups to existing tariffs, where appropriate.
