We work with national governments in emerging markets and developing economies and collaborate with international, regional and national organisations committed to accelerating the energy transition in these countries. Our strong network of partners supports us in implementing our strategy.

RELP provides specialised, independent technical assistance and innovative programmatic solutions to national governments free of charge, thanks to the support of our donors.

RELP's offer to governments is unique:

It focuses on real impact and programme implementation.

It starts with an experienced team with direct exposure to both the private and public sectors (successfully implementing a multi-year renewable energy programme -RenovAr- as former public officials of Argentina in a complex investment environment).

It includes innovative tools designed for governments, such as the iTrust Fund (iTrust Enabling Clean Power) and the AREA digital platform, to successfully analyse, design, run and de-risk public clean energy competitive programmes (both RE and Battery Energy Storage Systems - BESS) and unlock investments at scale (and at lower prices).

RELP's commitment to working hand in hand with national governments to effectively implement multi-year competitive programmes sets us apart. Our team does not operate as "external consultants". On the contrary, we aim to work closer as an extended arm of government teams, typically hosted at the ministries of energy and finance, offering the type of support and tools we wished to have when RELP’s team was in office in the Argentine government.

RELP collaborates with national and international organisations committed to accelerating the energy transition. A strong network of partners is a key component of our strategy, helping us engage and deliver complementary services with more governments in EMDEs, scaling up our impact at a faster pace.

We are expanding our organisation and network of partners globally.

Latin America & Caribbean

In Latin America and the Caribbean region, RELP partners with the Latin American Energy Organization (OLADE) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to gather insights on current national strategies and to directly connect with energy ministries on power sector analysis, credit enhancement tools, risk mitigation, and programme-based guarantee design and implementation.

We also collaborate with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB); the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI); the Caribbean Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CCREEE), an institution of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM); the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) and the Caribbean Climate Smart Accelerator (CCSA) to assess possible technical support to several governments.

Since May 2023 RELP has been working with the Government of Jamaica (assisting the Generation Procurement Entity, at the Ministry of Science, Energy and Telecommunications and Transport) to design and implement a successful public tender for 100 MW of new renewable energy capacity. RELP is committed to continue working on the second tranche of 168MW.

In the first half of 2024, RELP started working with the Government of Barbados (Ministry of Energy and Business) to design and implement a Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) competitive bidding programme to support the country in attracting cheaper energy storage tariffs. The Cooperation Agreement signed with the Government includes assisting the country in creating and implementing successful and transparent procurement programmes, developing policy frameworks and credit-enhancement tools to attract investment and lower RE generation and storage costs, providing technical support to achieve energy transition goals and exploring further opportunities for RE and BESS to strengthen Barbados' overall energy procurement programme.

Asia and Southeast Asia (SEA)

In Southeast Asia, RELP partners with the SouthEast Asia Energy Transition Partnership (SEA ETP) and as a member of the UK COP26 Energy Transition Council (ETC) and its Rapid Response Facility (RRF), we currently coordinate efforts with IRENA, Agora Energiewende, the UK Climate Compatible Growth Programme (CCG), USAID and other partners, to provide specialised technical support to the Philippines and, more preliminary, RE policy assessment work in Vietnam and Lao PDR. In the region, we also partner with Clime Capital, a fund with headquarters in Singapore managing the Southeast Asia Clean Energy Facility (SEACEF) and we are assessing new partnership opportunities.

In South Asia, RELP partners with Planetive to assist the Government of Pakistan in the planning, design and implementation of a new multi-year clean energy programme to unlock investments at scale, help the country access cheaper electricity and gradually develop a more sustainable power sector.


In the past couple of years, RELP worked in Algeria (EU-sponsored project), South Africa (European Climate Foundation-sponsored project) and for the Government of Malawi (in partnership with RMI), providing a series of capacity-building activities on auction design and project finance for government officials. Now we are seeking to expand our work in several other countries, including Senegal and Kenya, to support the implementation of new clean electricity and BESS auctions including better bankability features such as guarantees and other risk-mitigation tools.

Eastern Europe

In Eastern Europe, RELP is currently assessing opportunities in "coal-heavy countries” to support a faster energy transition. Supporting existing EU platforms and programmes focusing on government-level technical assistance in the region and neighbouring countries.

In particular, RELP is engaging with the Government of Ukraine and development partners to assess feasibility and prepare a bankable framework for a clean energy programme to be prepared and implemented depending on the country’s priorities.
