Series: Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and Climate Change Program Annual Reports


The Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and Climate Change (REACH) Program was established in early 2002 as an umbrella program covering four bilateral trust funds targeted at clean energy and environment that are administered by the Asian Development Bank (ADB). These trust funds are as follows:

  • Canadian Cooperation Fund on Climate Change
  • Danish Cooperation Fund for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency in Rural Areas
  • Dutch Cooperation for Promotion of Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Abatement
  • Finnish Technical Assistance Grant Fund

REACH promotes renewable energy, energy efficiency, and clean energy technologies to address poverty and climate change in Asia and the Pacific. It seeks to enable developing member countries (DMCs) through capacity-building, project identification and due diligence, technology demonstration, outreach activities, and policy and analytical studies to help overcome barriers to the widespread application of renewable energy and energy efficiency.

This report sets out the accomplishments of REACH funds for the January to December 2009 time period. It provides both collective data and individual data. It also highlights the key outcomes of completed projects, the progress of ongoing projects, and the financial status of the funds. The final section of the report identifies key issues and outlook.
