for the Asia Pacific

About RECAP

RECAP offers a variety of searchable services on renewable energy through a web-based resource facility. This facility will serve as a platform for cooperation among countries in the Asia Pacific region in the area of renewable energy to accelerate its development and deployment. It is a one-stop shop for quality information available in participating member countries of the region on renewable energy technologies (RETs), resource assessment, technology transfer planning and implementation, research projects where collaboration is being sought, potential private investors and affordable finance, and policies and policy instruments for promoting the utilization of renewable energy technologies

Areas:
  • Solar
  • Biomass
  • Mini Hydro Power
  • Wind
