Scaling Up Renewable Energy Program (SREP) (part of the Strategic Climate Fund)

The SREP was established to scale up the deployment of renewable energy solutions and expand renewables markets in the world’s poorest countries. It aims to pilot and demonstrate the economic, social, and environmental viability of low carbon development pathways. [Info provided by the IRENA Navigator Project]
