ENTERING PROJECT DATA

This portal page provides entry points for provision of data relating to Category A (policy development/programmes) and Category B (renewable energy install- ments on the ground) projects.
In order to enter data you will need to obtain login details from the AREI IDU. African governments as well as stakeholder institutions are invited to submitt data, as are international partners. To obtain login details, please write to: projects@arei.org.

DATA ENTRY FOR PROJECTS TO BE ASSESSED FOR ATTRIBUTION AGAINST AREI CRITERIA

Projects approved by AREI as compliant with AREI Criteria will count towards the AREI aggregate targets. To submit projects for attribution, please first contact the AREI IDU: projects@arei.org

In order to assess cateogry A and B projects, data relating to the AREI Criteria’s Essential Requirements wlll need to be submitted. Please use the buttons below to login to a specific data entry form in the AREI database:

DATA ENTRY FOR AFRICA-WIDE MAPPING OF PROJECTS AND PROGRAMMES

AREI also seeks to map the overall renewable energy project and programme pipline in order to establish an African-generated, African-based understanding and overview of what is happening on the continent.

This mapping of the general renewable energy pipeline constitutes one dimension of the mapping tools that AREI is currently developing. This mapping tool will also map actors, networks, initiatives, partners, policies, barriers, success stories and trends. Mapping of the renewable energy pipeline will be initiated first.

African governments, stakeholders as well as international partners are invited to provide project data. Contact projects@arei.org for login. Entering a project in the mapping database does not mean that the project is compliant with AREI criteria.

AREI ATTRIBUTION OF PROJECTS AND PROGRAMMES

The AREI attribution process determines whether a Category A or B project/programme is compliant with the Board approved AREI Criteria. Attribution has several purposes.
First, to help mobilize and boost funders’ investments in AREI compliant projects/programmes.
Second, to help project/programme developers design, from the very beginning, their projects in ways that will comply with AREI values and framework.
Third, to provide ways to assess and compare relative quality of projects/programmes.
Fourth, provide a framework for determining funding priorities for the AREI Trust Fund, once capitalized and operationalised.

Attribution does not automatically mean that a project is financed.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CATEGORY A AND B PROJECTS?

CATEGORY A (POLICY DEVELOPMENT/ PROGRAMMES) PROJECTS

• Economic instruments: incentives and de-risking measures such as guarantees and feed-in tariffs, redirection of subsidies, procurement etc) • Regulatory and Legal Instruments • Capacity Building • Information and education • Public funding of technology research, development & deployment • Environmental impact, technology and risk assessments, gender policies, social and environmental safeguards and public participation • Coordination of on-going/planned RE projects

CATEGORY B (RENEWABLE ENERGY INSTALLATIONS ON THE GROUND

• Solar photovoltaic and thermal • Wind power generators (electric and non-electric) • Biomass • Hydropower (in particular pico-, micro-, small- and medium-scale) • Geothermal • Marine • Renewable energy relevant transmission/distribution/storage • Energy efficiency measures
