Reegle – The Information Gateway for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency
The existing information gap on renewable energy and energy efficiency led REN21 and REEEP to join hands and work together towards the establishment of a user-friendly and comprehensive information portal on clean energy policy, regulation and financing. The agreement to create an information gateway at www.reegle.infowas also influenced by the conclusions of World Bank’s March 2005 renewable energy and energy efficiency policy forum.
What is reegle
Reegle is a one-stop-shop for high quality up-to-date information on renewable energy and energy efficiency, and on stakeholders in the sectors. reegle is designed to be both a repository for high-quality up-to-date information as well as an entry point to relevant data sources and key providers of relevant information. reegle’s content is derived from data and information in existing databases covering the following areas related to renewable energy and energy efficiency:
- Jurisdiction & Laws
- Policies & Measures
- Finance & Investment
- Reports & Analyses
- Latest News
The main objectives of reegle are to ensure a better information flow and to facilitate the understanding of the roles and activities of the many different initiatives and opportunities in the two sectors renewable energy and energy efficiency. reegle therefore aims to provide information and data on the various sub-sectors within renewable energy and energy efficiency at a global level.
reegle is a public online resource provided by REEEP and REN21, funded by the British Department of the Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and the British Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) as well as the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), the Dutch Ministry of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment (MINVROM) and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management (BMLFUW).
