Activities and Services

CCREEE implements, coordinates and supports regional activities in the scope of the following four outcome areas:

  • Outcome A:  Accelerated development, adoption and execution of regional and national gender sensitive RE&EE polices, targets and incentives through targeted regional interventions
  • Outcome B: Strengthened capacities of local key institutions and stakeholder groups through the up-scaling and replication of certified training and applied research programs and mechanisms
  • Outcome C: Enhanced awareness of key stakeholder groups on RE&EE opportunities through the up-scaling of regional mechanisms for data and knowledge management and advocacy
  • Outcome D: Increased RE&EE business opportunities for local  companies and industry through the execution of regional investment promotion programs and tailored financial schemes

The centre complements and strengthens ongoing national/regional activities in the areas of policy and capacity development, knowledge management and awareness raising, as well as investment and business promotion. CCREEE will position itself as a regional RE&EE promotion agency rather than an implementer on micro- and grass-root levels. To maximize the local added value the execution of specific assignments or services is in many cases delegated to national institutions and/or the private sector.

The centre focues on activities which demonstrate high relevance for leveraging investments in RE&EE infrastructure, services, local businesses and industry. Investment and business promotion will be an important activity component of the centre but also a cross-cutting issue across the other outcome areas. To create a regional RE&EE market, it is crucial for CCREEE to stimulate as much as possible spill-over effects across outcome areas and national borders.

The Centre applies an interrelated short-term and long-term planning, implementation and monitoring framework. The centre will work on the basis of the CCREEE Business Plan which will provide a long-term planning and implementation framework for the first operational phase. The annual work plans, which are subject to approval by the Executive Board, provide a short-term planning framework which incorporates projects and activities to be executed by the Secretariat in a given year. The annual status reports monitor the implementation of the work plans and report on the achievements in the different project components.
